by | Read by Kathleen Kim

Fiction • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Kathleen Kim's magnificent performance brings out the complexity and drama of this outstanding saga, which crosses cultures through generations and extends into the afterlife. Kim is the compelling voice of Jeonga Cha, a strong-willed woman who is haunted by decisions she made based on pride and her need to maintain her family's honor. Generations later, as a ghost, Jeonga Cha must rectify the consequences of her actions. Kim's Korean American accent provides an authenticity that immerses listeners in this novel. The wide range of emotions in her evocative narration deftly reveals Jeonga Cha's evolving voices as a woman, daughter, mother, sister, and grandmother across the intersections of political and cultural divides during her lifetime. Fans of BESTIARY by K-Ming Chang may find this divine, supernatural listening experience particularly intriguing. M.F.
