This week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the Audible Original, The Mountain & the Sea by Kwame Dawes. This work was published in April 2020. It is 3 hours & 17 minutes in length and narrated by Paula-Anne Jones. The following overview is provided from the Audible page: Esther, a painter living in Jamaica and recovering from the death of her husband, comes across a man on a mountain road with no memory of his past. As a hurricane rushes toward the island, she shelters the handsome stranger, names him “Monty,” and tries to uncover the mystery of his missing memory. She soon finds herself falling in love with a man she barely knows, and who doesn’t even know himself.
This Audible Original was beautifully written, and the narration was just as compelling. I got chills as I listened to this story. I felt like I was right there beside Esther, every step of her journey. The characters came to life around me. I highly recommend this audio work.
I give this Audible Original 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Tomorrow for the Missing Person Saturday feature, I am highlighting the missing person’s case of Rodney Alvarez Santizo. Next week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the literature history novel, Afrofuturism: The World of Black Sci-Fi & Fantasy Culture by Ytasha L. Womack. Until then keep reading on; Nerd out!
