Spices flavor our food and color our experiences. Tilo, Mistress of Spices, has learned their healing powers, using them to cure the ills of her customers. Immortal Tilo, seen in her "old woman body," becomes involved in the lives of those around her and especially in that of the beautiful American Indian who wanders into her heart and dreams. Choudhury performs this sensual tale of love and caring in the soft tones of Tilo the narrator, switching to more pronounced Indian intonations and an American accent when necessary. Divakaruni's words combine with Choudhury's quiet, narrative voice to transport the listener to this mysterious place. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 98]
