Fiction • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Soneela Nankani is a strong narrator for a novel about a woman who is confronting her parents' past. Nankani's dexterity and range as a performer are demonstrated in how she captures the wide range of characters. Through her confident style, listeners experience the modernization of India through middle-aged Maneka's eyes. Disoriented after being raised in the U.S., she must grapple with the loss of her mother, along with the many changes--and family secrets--she encounters while visiting India for the funeral. From Gopal, a young boy scorned by his family, to Maneka, who confronts her past, Nankani evokes interest and sympathy for the characters in this sprawling novel. Fans of world literature will find much to admire as this complex story becomes a luxurious listening experience. M.R. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
