How did you prepare to narrate White Houses?

There was not really any samples on Hick but for Eleanor -- I listened to every speech I could and adapted her voice to mine .... it was more of a tone and feel and mannerism then a voice match for me as are all my performances / readings in order to make authentic .... I feel it is much more important to get the feeling of where someone is coming from emotionally then it is the matching of the actual voice sound.... it is not ADR but a book!! The essence and spine of the story wins out always!!
Hick I did a bit of research into her roots and how those folks spoke and related to one another at the time. It was very important for me to never let Hick feel to buttoned-up or over- educated... and god-forbid snobbish! The feel of Hick is no bull-shit and street smarts!
