The Goddess Lives in Upstate New York:Breaking Convention and Making Home at a North American Hindu Temple Corinne G. Dempsey
Isabel, born into the British Raj, and Asha, a young Hindu girl, both consider India their home. Through mischance and accident their stories intersect, and circumstances will bring them from the bustling city of Delhi to the shores of the Andaman Islands, from glittering colonial parties to the squalor and desperation of a notorious prison, and into the lives of men on opposing sides of the fight for self-rule. As the shadow of the Second World War falls across India, Isabel, caught up in growing political violence, has to make impossible choices - fighting for her love for India, for the man she yearns for, and for her childhood Indian friend - in the face of loyalty to her own country. 1.

Esta versão em áudio da empolgante história de Júlio Verne ganhou um interesse especial graças aos efeitos sonoros e à trilha musical desenvolvida especialmente para a obra. A frieza e tranquilidade do inglês Phileas Fogg, interpretado pelo ator Guilherme Lopes, contrapõe-se ao som eletrizante de trens, navios, movimentos do mar, tempestades e outros elementos de ambientação sonora. A trilha sonora marca a passagem do tempo e as mudanças de países com seus temas característicos, passando por Inglaterra, Índia, Egito, China, Japão e Estados Unidos. Também ajuda a ilustrar o caráter dos dois personagens centrais: o sisudo Phileas Fogg, com trilha sonora inspirada em um tema inglês de andamento rígido, semelhante a uma marcha, e o divertido e fiel Passepartout, que no áudio aparece sempre envolto em uma atmosfera musical leve e divertida.Vozes: Antonio Carlos Prado Mói (funcionário da estrada de ferro, juiz, Thomas Flanagan e vozes diversas); Alecs Lima (inspetor Fix e Andrew Stuart); Ana Paula Frade (vozes diversas); Barros Batista (capitão e maquinista); Di Ramon (cônsul, guia, policial, homem hindu e fiscal); Giuliano Frade (escrivão e Cromarty); Guilherme Lopes (Phileas Fogg); Laura Mayumi (Auda); Marcio Brodt (Passepartout, ferroviário, passageiro agitado e mórmon); Paulo Arcuri (narração); Sony Moreno (Gaultier Ralph, Batulcar, Mudge e John Sullivan). Trilha sonora com composições e arranjos para temas étnicos e clássicos: Kauê Lemos.Gravação feita a partir de texto adaptado por Fernando Nuno. Co-produção da Livro Falante com a Editora DCL.
