Fiction • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Tense, thought-provoking, and timely, this audiobook is a must-listen. Narrator Ben Onwukwe pulls listeners in immediately with the story of Samuel, a man who lives alone on an unnamed island off the coast of Africa. His solitary existence is simple, but he is witness to the violence around him as the bodies of refugees wash up on his island and he buries them. One day, a stranger washes up still breathing, and his story unfolds as Samuel takes care of him. The tale is dark and heartbreaking but is also important to hear in order to understand the life-changing consequences of dispossession, survival, and hope. Onwukwe captures the tragedy of this story, which listeners will still be thinking about long after it ends. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
