Soneela Nankani brings a light and airy approach to the narration of this hilarious story of the perfect arranged marriage. Afi, who is young, ambitious, and poor, recognizes her ticket out of poverty when a man from a wealthy family proposes. Nankani takes us on the wild ride from Afi's village to the big city of Accra, Ghana. Listeners are entertained from the opening scene, in which a wedding takes place without the presence of the groom. He has declined to attend, having sent a stand-in instead. Nankani plays up Afi's feisty spirit and the story's unusual circumstances. This fun, well-delivered performance brings together the best elements of international and women's fiction.
