Suzanne Toren has recorded over nine hundred audiobooks. She has performed on Broadway and in regional theaters in works penned by Shakespeare, Moliere, and Arthur Miller. She has also appeared on Law & Order and in various soap operas. She was awarded the Narrator of the Year Award for her audiobook recordings for the Library of Congress and has earned more than two dozen Earphones Awards from AudioFile magazine.
In the All-of-a-Kind series, Taylor presents a insider's view of early-1900s New York through the eyes of five spirited sisters. Suzanne Toren skillfully portrays the immigrant parents' accents, the chirpy children, and even sings a beautiful ballad. She also convincingly recreates the well-written text and performs a subplot in which a child confronts her conscience most believably. Listeners feel privy to each child's reactions and thoughts as she experiences the often harsh conditions of the city, as well as her warm and loving home life. A worthwhile message of tolerance, endurance, and friendship is subtly projected in these true-to-life vignettes. Everyone will enjoy and benefit from meeting the All-of-a-Kind Family. S.G.B.
