Eleven-year-old Nhamo invites young listeners to share her adventures in the wilds of Africa as she flees from her village and a planned marriage to a cruel stranger. Along the way, as Nhamo blossoms into a self-assured young woman, listeners grow with her as they gain a new perspective on the rich cultural diversity present in this world. Narrator Lisette Lecat entices audio-travelers to accompany Nhamo on her journey in a masterful reading. Her English accent and easy characterization make the cross-cultural experience even more compelling. Through Lecat's delightful narration, this newest book by a Newbery Award-winning author will not only entertain listeners, but encourage them to value cultural differences.
