Victor Hugo wrote in his classic Les Misérables, Book 5, Chapter 4: "God is behind everything, but everything hides God." Hugo's immortal classic, an epic story of redemption set in Paris after the French Revolution, clearly illustrates the saving grace of God, and the change that can be had for anyone willing to accept it.
This 1937 radio dramatization was written, produced, and performed by none other than the incomparable Orson Welles of War of the Worlds fame. The story of the book is faithfully retold (with questionable subjects carefully camouflaged) and is suitable for students aged ten and older. This live recording, masterfully performed by an incredible professional cast, includes sound effects, music, and an unforgettable story.
