When Dorothy Moy, portrayed by Jennifer Lim, realizes that the visions causing her daughter to act out are versions of her own inherited memories, she decides to do something about it. Even author Jamie Ford gets in on the act in this audiobook, narrating a note on epigenetics and how it explains the parallels between the daughter and generations of women in Moy's family. Other cast members help listeners follow the complex story by differentiating the characters and their many inherited traumas. Characters living in varying historical settings include Lai King, who is trying to escape the Black Death in 1892, portrayed by Sura Siu, and Afong Moy, America’s first female Chinese immigrant, who is living and performing in a sideshow, portrayed by Emily Woo Zeller.
