Interesting podcast. I'm not at all familiar with "The Awakening" but this podcast peaked my curiosity. I get the impression that this is a love story of sort from the nineteenth century. The description of colors and mood allow your imagination to put you there with the characters feeling the tension in the air. I would like to know why the parrot was screaming "Shut Up, Shut Up..." in the begininng. Does this set the tone for the story?
This may be worth reading to find out.
