Rasha Zamamiri's captivating performance of this timely audiobook will enchant listeners. Poetry, mysticism, and Persian folklore infuse a story that alternates between war-torn Iran in the early 1980s and San Diego and then Iran again in 2009. The narrative centers on Kimia, an Iranian-American life coach. She agrees to travel to Iran with her mother, a poet who remains traumatized by the war. Memories flood back to Kimia, some joyful and others painful. She recollects her childhood home and friends, as well as the Iranian policies that established restrictions on women's freedom. Zamamiri expresses the emotional core of each character, and her accents and pronunciation of Farsi words are impeccable. Listeners will feel they are in step with Kamia at every moment.
