Historical Fiction • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Soneela Nankani is often featured in South Asian titles. This fictional account of one part of the RAMAYANA, an ancient Hindu tale, is further proof that she's an excellent narrator. Nankani presents the lively, young princess Kaikeyi, who is maddeningly hemmed in and ignored by the sexist society she's grown up in. Listeners will feel sympathy for Kaikeyi as she fights to hold on to her place in the social order despite her father's capricious ways. Nankani's narration has a dreamy tone in Kaikeyi's early years and takes on harder edges as Kaikeyi discovers magical abilities in her rise to warrior queen. Fans of world literature will delight in this unique tale and strong performance. M.R. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2022]
