In clear, careful tones, Subhadra Newton narrates this intriguing memoir. The author beat the odds of her impoverished upbringing in Fiji and the demands of her family's Hindu culture to achieve a successful nursing career. Newton's youthful timbre initially feels mismatched to the memoir's point of view--that of an older woman who is recounting valuable lessons in resilience. In addition to the challenges in Fiji, her determination was forged by adjusting to a new life in Vancouver at the age of 16 and successfully raising two children in an arranged marriage to an abusive husband. Soon, though, Newton's tone of sincerity makes the author's vibrant words her own. E.E. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
