Natalie Naudus's emotional but subdued performance of this novel perfectly matches its tone. Told through a series of linked stories, the audiobook documents the decades-long friendship of two Taiwanese-American women, Fiona and Jane. After growing up together in Los Angeles, they drift in and out of each other's lives as they navigate falling in love, heartbreak, and divorce; career; friendship; family dynamics; money; and more. Naudus gives Fiona a higher-pitched voice, while Jane's is lower and deeper, making it easy for listeners to distinguish between their points of view. Naudus's performance is most poignant as the women age. As their understanding of themselves, their friendship, and the world around them changes, so do their voices.
