Fiction • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Hemi Yeroham is the thoughtful voice behind this twisting tale of love, migration, and culture. He presents the star-crossed lovers-- Meleknaz, a Yazidi Syrian refugee, and Hussein, a young Turkish man--who meet against the backdrop of a refugee camp and parental disapproval. Yeroham has the rich, round baritone of an orator, which elevates the entire listening experience. His smooth delivery makes it easy for listeners to immerse themselves in the history of this complicated region. Listeners will feel sympathy for Meleknaz and Hussein as forces conspire against them and Yeroham expertly builds the tension. This pairing of an artistic performer with a beautifully fraught story will move listeners through a range of emotions. M.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2021]
