These are the clues that archaeologist, Digger Morgan, discovers while working on a routine dig at a Maryland Plantation. Who were the girls? When was the fire? The answers all lead to 1920s jazz pioneer, Kit Jeffers, whose voice mysteriously appears on Digger's computer and whose existence remains haunted by a singular tragic event.With the sound design, rhythm and detail of an independent film, IN THE EMBERS stars Audie-Award winner, Robin Miles, and features an original score, inventive sound effects and a fine ensemble cast.BONUS TRACKS: Music from the production and interviews with the cast.CAST: Edwin Strout - Digger Morgan Robin Miles - Kit Jeffers Olivia DuFord - Young Alice Jeffers Dawn Krosnowski - Susan Gordon Smuder - Tom Susanne Becker - Cindy Tom Joyal - Berringer Charlie Meitzner - Denny Dean Johnson - Epstein Jacquie Maddix - Old Alice E.
