Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Narrator Rosa Escoda takes listeners back to Belle-poque Paris and then to the Korean Joseon Court. She frames this true story of Yi Jin, a court dancer who became the wife of a Frenchman, in a voice as delicate as Yi's famed beauty. Listeners learn about Korean and European societies in a bygone time through Escoda's light touch. She tells this tragic love story in dulcet tones that both inform listeners about the history of the period and tug at their heartstrings as Yi Jin encounters feelings of alienation in Paris. Escoda's steady narration clearly moves listeners between Korea and France as the story imagines Yi's remarkable journey. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2018]
