Narrators Joniece Abbott-Pratt and Landon Woodson's transformative performances take listeners through time as two teenagers fall in love over multiple lifetimes. Woodson is emotive and upbeat as Fayard, who lives his many lives with reckless abandon. In contrast, Abbott-Pratt gives a more reserved and subtle performance as Tamar, who struggles to put her well-being first in her various lives. The narrators expertly alter their performances as the teens cycle through lifetimes; they effortlessly take on the rhythmic accent of precolonial Africa, the fast-paced delivery of the 1920s, and the laid-back tone of modern times. The pair give a stunning performance that highlights their ability to play with nuance and cadence to evoke the unique settings in this genre-defying love story. J.E.C.
