40 Voices Challenge #9

Boy #2 – A Child’s Dream of a Star

This story was written by Charles Dickens in 1850.  According to Bartleby.com Dickens told a
biographer that as a child he used to wander at night about a churchyard near
their home, with his sister.  This sister
died only two years before this story was written.

The text can be found on Bartleby.com

For this voice challenge I was going to work on
children’s voices, but once I completed the narration it seemed more natural to
keep the voices in the narrator’s voice.

The story itself is both and beautiful and the narrative
is the most important part.  I also felt
inspired to add some mellow guitar to add an extra layer to the text.
