Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Emily Woo Zeller draws listeners into young San San's confusion about life in new China. During the Cultural Revolution she questions everyone's disdain for all things foreign. Zeller infuses this historical family drama with a flexible range that embraces male and female characters, as well as capturing the nuances of difference between adults and children. She transitions effortlessly between San San and her brother, Ah Liam, taking the listener on the family's painful journey of dislocation and betrayal. Zeller embodies this story of love and loss with a heartfelt undertone that highlights the loss of innocence when Ah Liam turns informer on his family. We persist, listening in dread, as with deep feeling, Zeller reveals the horrific consequences of Ah Liam's actions. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
