    Story

    Fireflies seem to dance on sheer air, illuminating the space between heartbeats. Children give off a similar brave glow, despite the challenges of their young lives. The lessons of childhood are often painful, the shedding of fragile wings in the gloam of an uncertain future. These rich novellas are small jewels reflecting the essence of what it means to grow up dancing among the shadows of life, carrying a brave, small beacon because you know that even the brightest days always, always, end in darkness.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Firefly Dance in three words, what would they be?

    The variety is impressive and the delivery is excellent. I'm from the south, and I often cringe when I hear people trying to do southern accents. Sometimes, the narrator was absolutely channeling my well-educated southern mother and sometimes, she sounded like someone out of Deliverance. Not many people can do that. I also really enjoyed the dark almost Gothic quality of the story. I recommend this highly!


    If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?

    For anything set in the south, this is the best I have heard, in terms of the accents. Other than the accents in the delivery, I think the variety in Firefly Dance makes it more interesting to listen to.


    What does Frances Fuller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A lot of emotion. I really felt that she 'got' the characters. I enjoy listening to her.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both!!


    Any additional comments?

    I'd love to here more things read by Frances.
