Angel A’s “Mary Poser” nominated for fiction - best VoiceOver audiobook narration by SOVAS

The novel tells of a dutiful Southern daughter who pretends to fit into her mother's world, but who secretly holds a penchant for differences and adventure which are hidden from her family and even herself. It seems unlikely that a girl from a strict Baptist household would even meet, much less fall in love with, a Hindu Indian man whose very different world collides with hers on so many levels, but Mary Poser's illusions about life, carefully constructed in a rigid environment, are wildly shaken. A near death experience and profound personal challenges reveal a depth of character in Mary that disclose the true harm of unchecked mental health issues. Heather's narration, talking as Mary in the first person, offers a message of hope and inspiration for anyone overwhelmed with anxiety from approval demands of family, faith and culture.

People who love listening to stories about complicated love, culture, religion, spirituality, and self discovery will adore this captivating novel. Through Heather's masterful narration, readers experience the Mary's deep respect for her family and culture as she conceals mental illness and navigates a complex and profoundly revealing multicultural relationship. The novel also highlights and contrasts the unique hardships, triumphs, culture, and values of Hinduism and Christianity.

Audiobook available from Audible, Kobo, Chirp, Libro, Google Play and Storytel in original uncut and young adult editions.
