In Revival Season, Joniece Abbott-Pratt’s performance captures the fear and exhilaration of 15-year-old Miriam Horton as she travels the revival circuit with her family. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss Abbott-Pratt’s skill at narrating debut novelist Monica West’s scenes of terror and wonder, using a fast-paced style that suits the high emotions of the revival meetings at the center of the plot. She expertly emulates Miriam’s troubled voice when things go wrong.
