Through all the world there goes one long cry from the heart of the artist: give me leave to do my utmost. This line from Babette's Feast lends itself to both of the stories in this audio collection, which tell of unbreakable human spirit and total commitment to life choices. Babette's Feast, now an award-winning film, takes a humorous look at a pure-spirited community in which love, lost youth, self-denial, and creative urges contribute to making the right choices. And Sorrow-Acre, the most anthologized of Isak Dinesen's stories, challenges the most profound choice of all. Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress Colleen Dewhurst's warm, sensitive interpretation reveals the subtle beauty of Dinesen's prose. Download and start listening now!

    " One of my most favorite books of all time. I have read this book so many times and own the movie rendention. To give a book 5 stars is a serious matter that I do not take lightly. So, I can say that I rarely give 5 stars to any book. Need I say more? "
