by | Read by Wayétu Moore

Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Author Wayétu Moore narrates this unique novel, which imagines Liberia's early history. She confidently moves from realistic historical scenes to scenes filled with magical realism while weaving together three very different main characters. Gbessa, June Dey, and Norman Aragon are all outcasts whom fate brings together. Moore's soothing, restive, and contemplative tones give listeners a sense of the mystical realm of spirits while allowing us to envision the complex threads of the narrative. Her delivery adds to listeners' desire to see if the three characters will find freedom as their new country seeks to be liberated from the shadow of American influence.
