Listeners who are unfamiliar with Haben Girma may find her voice a little disconcerting at first because it sounds like that of a much younger person. Girma is a DeafBlind woman who overcame incredible odds and narrates her own story, which culminates with her graduation from Harvard Law School. We quickly move beyond her vocal delivery as we learn how she overcame many considerable challenges to live her life to the fullest. She never wavers in her descriptions of the continual barriers to her mobility. Her pace is steady and devoid of self-pity as we are overwhelmed by the details of the daily tasks that she fights to carry out, which able-bodied people enjoy without much reflection. Listeners will be spellbound by this inspiring true story of courage and persistence. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
