What the Critics Say

"Austell brilliantly depicts the cruel costs of the bitter North-South schism on both home front and battlefield....[While the Music Plays has] the narrative power and flow of Margaret Mitchell's [Gone with the Wind]." (Publishers Weekly)
"One is in good hands with reader Anna Fields. She sets this costume drama before the listener with ladylike enthusiasm, obviously having a good time." (AudioFile)
