Natalie Naudus delivers this epic of fate, ambition, and identity set in thirteenth-century Mongol-ruled China. After a childhood full of death and starvation, a young woman assumes her brother's identity and takes his place as a novice monk destined for greatness. Listeners will follow Zhu Chongba as she joins the rebellion against Mongol rule and works her way up the ranks to higher and higher positions of power. A large cast of characters whose voices become somewhat hard to differentiate may confuse briefly, but listeners who stick with this story will find themselves enjoying a deeply and subtly emotional saga brought to life with passion.
