Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Neil Shah is a strong narrator for this family drama about siblings Bhumi and Jaipal, who are separated by civil unrest on their small South Pacific island. Fans of world literature will be enthralled by this story of rising nationalism as the islanders turn on the minority Indian community. Shah shifts easily between dense narrative and dialogue. He maintains listeners' engagement despite a large cast of characters, and his dramatic flair underscores the threats of impending violence faced by Bhumi and Jaipal. Adding authenticity to the overall experience, Shah capably pronounces the South Asian names, places, and words scattered throughout this story.
