Narrator Simon Vance makes this true story seem like the most engrossing fiction. Vance focuses listeners on the problems faced by Ruth Williams, a white British clerk, and Seretse Kharma, a black African prince. The two met in 1948, fell in love, got married, and faced formidable opposition from implacable governments. Vance delivers credible accents and authentic personalities, shifting between the desperation of the separated couple and British government's cold-blooded opposition to their high-profile interracial marriage. Vance is spectacular delivering this heartfelt and uplifting story of an African man and his wife and the obstructions they faced as an interracial couple in a racist world. Their controversial marriage is the subject of the film A UNITED KINGDOM. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2018]
