Six narrators of Asian descent bring to life untold fictional stories of WWII in this debut short story collection. The narrators--Feodor Chin, Ren Hanami, Catherine Ho, Greta Jung, Akie Kotabe, and Nancy Wu--take turns reading 13 interconnected stories that mostly revolve around a Japanese family. Spanning more than 150 years, the saga covers the period between the early twentieth century and the futuristic 2035. With silvery voices and smooth pacing, Jung and Kotabe dazzle in the stories they narrate. Chin and Wu add emotional intensity to the rest. Together, the narrators' varied and multifaceted vocal ranges add diversity to the collection. Listeners will be enlightened by the audiobook's significant themes.
