Keeping vigil at her mother’s deathbed, Jacinta Moses recollects her family’s past, her own present, and her daughter’s future. Born the daughter of a black African writer and a white British actress, Moses has survived the racism of post-war London to become a strong woman with a remarkable story. Robin Miles gives a stellar performance in this audiobook. Her British accent is spot-on. Miles deftly accommodates a wide variety of characters, whether British, African, American, male, female, young, or old. More than anything else, the narrator conveys the turmoil felt by people caught in the midst of a racially homogeneous society transforming itself into a multicultural one.
