Narrator Anniwaa Buachie's talent is phenomenal; her flexibility and skill match the storytelling skill of the author, resulting in a tour-de- force audiobook. This coming-of-age debut features Esi Agyekum, a Nigerian-Ghanaian girl growing up in the 1960s. Esi's journey from girl to woman is fascinating; she is intelligent, hilarious, and curious. She's her father's favorite, and her education is paramount to him, but he also constantly reminds her, "A woman's glory is her husband." How Esi swims against the tide of the patriarchy is satisfying; listeners will find themselves rooting for her. Buachie's range is impressive; every character has a distinct voice, accent, and pitch. She successfully conveys Esi's emotions as she matures. This audiobook is stunningly beautiful and cannot be missed. A.M.
