This novel aims to show how much of the world can be involved with one seed. (A lot.) Her parents’ health crises force Yumi Fuller to come home to the Idaho potato farm she ran from decades earlier. At the same time, a band of environmental activists in a Winnebago is also converging on the Fuller farm because the business Yumi’s Japanese mother has started, raising and distributing heirloom seeds, fits their political agenda. The story keeps exploding outward like a clump of cells becoming a complex plant but is never out of control; it never even strains credulity. Anna Fields’s reading is as accomplished as the storytelling; as audio experiences go, this is just about perfect. B.G.
