Nancy Wu provides a crisp, intelligent-sounding voice for historical information on the nation of Taiwan, which is presented alongside the author's personal memories of her childhood there. Wu captures the author's inquisitive spirit as shown through her discovery of family letters and her explorations of the flora, fauna, and history of the island that was once her family's home. Listeners will sink into the lush descriptions of the country's unique natural world--though some might wish there were more emphasis on self-discovery. Wu is tender when presenting the author's memories of her grandparents, and she sensitively captures the longing of immigrant children for their native languages and homes. This is an easy-listening experience for those who are missing opportunities to travel to Asia. M.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
