    "A Legendary Folk Hero Brought To Life"

    I really enjoyed the audio version of "A Free Woman on God's Earth" by Jana Laiz and Ann-Elizabeth Barnes. The narration by Adenrele Ojo was beautifully, clearly and thoughtfully done. Even though I had read the book previously, to hear it I feel as though I learned much more. The authors give Mumbet a voice that shows her courage, wisdom and love of life with an unwaivering determination to be free from slavery. The other characters all came alive as well making the story-telling of this important historical turning point well worth listening to.
