As she's done previously, author Stacey Lee finds a fascinating bit of unexplored history and writes fiction that enlightens audiobook listeners, this time about mistreatment aboard the TITANIC after the Chinese Exclusion Act. Narrator Rebecca Yeo's crisp British accents convince listeners that British-Chinese heroine Valora Luck has the daring to stowaway among the wealthy in first class. Yeo's accents and emotions show both range and seamless transitions whether she's portraying Chinese characters, posh Brits, or Valora's mother's humble roots. Yeo also expresses Valora's determination to be united with her twin brother, Jamie, who is a circus acrobat in New York City. Stacey Lee's two author's notes reveal the depth of her research and considerations she took while writing her novel. S.W.
