This unusual audiobook is well performed by Nicole Lewis, whose voice shifts appropriately from pragmatic to passionate, keeping the listener engaged. At its heart is the story of Thandi, an African-American young woman who is dealing with the complexities of life, death, and love that spans the space between. The narrative leaps among time periods and significant events, memories, and even dreams that Thandi experiences. Thanks to Lewis's skill and timing, one can largely follow the story despite the shifts. A glance at the novel's print version shows that the listener is missing some context without the content present there--photographs, footnotes, excerpted material, for example--but the audiobook stands on its own if the listener is patient.
