Critic Reviews

"Narrator Barbara Creel-Benjamin's warm, believable delivery is perfect for these stories, based on actual events. Creel-Benjamin deftly builds tension in 'City of Death.' There's a rumor among the slaves of Wilmington that something nameless and faceless is carrying death. No one more calmly denies this than Dr. Dixon - that is, until he's called to the bedside of the daughter of a desperate-sounding man. In 'Swamp Girl,' Creel-Benjamin's homey voice describes the Spanish moss and night sounds as a young woman going to see her sick mother hitches a ride with the Tiptons, who are shocked when she suddenly vanishes. Mr. Tipton resolutely goes to the address where she was to be dropped off, and a shocking revelation occurs." (AudioFile magazine)
