Mozhan Marno and Yousif Kamal share the narration of this engrossing audiobook, which captures a father-daughter relationship built on four visits in 20 years. As a girl, Niloo sought refuge in America, leaving her father, Bahman, behind in Iran. A powerful narrative duo, Marno and Kamal create these two complex personalities with sincerity and care, keeping their vocal tones moving between longing and self-preservation. Both voices are rich and confident as they capture a variety of characters and accents. Moments of humor are celebrated, and the narrative, particularly the shifts in time periods, is smooth and clear. This audiobook is both a well-crafted exploration of a contemporary issue and an engaging story about the timeless ideas of family and home. L.B.F.
