Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Bahni Turpin is an experienced narrator of international fiction, and it shows in this story about an American woman abroad. Shay is an African-American woman whose relationship with her holiday house in Madagascar becomes as important as the ones she has with real people. Turpin gives a lively, arch performance, capturing the history and magic of Madagascar as well as Shay's personality. Listeners who are searching for a unique novel that intertwines plot with setting will soak in this experience. Turpin jumps back and forth between details of the island's vivid past and Shay's urgent present, filled with the demands of work, parenting, and marriage. This entertaining title will engage listeners until the very end. M.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
