Love and its complexities—familial, romantic, geographical—are the backbone of this excellent audiobook, Groundskeeping. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss the Earphones Award-winning narration of Golden Voice Michael Crouch. He provides distinct vocal shifts as he portrays entire personalities with his thoughtful character development. Owen is a groundskeeper at a Kentucky college, his days punctuated by his budding romance with visiting author Alma and his entry into the creative writing program. The story skillfully balances heartfelt and hilarious moments. Beautifully suited to the audio format.
