Janina Edwards capably narrates this eloquent audiobook about broken family ties, American civil rights in the 1960s, and 21st-century grace after the Rwandan genocide. Rachel, a modern-day New Yorker who is searching for the father who abandoned her at an early age, travels to Rwanda to connect with his second wife, Lillian. Edwards reveals Rachel's desperation and Lillian's heartbroken reluctance to deal with her. Edwards is especially skilled at delivering the descriptions of of Rwanda's stark beauty and the horrors of tribal warfare. Her depictions of two Rwandans--a young doctor and a Tutsi woman who survived torture--capture the careful shells both have constructed to protect their hearts.
