The world of nineteenth-century China unfolds like the fan of this title as Janet Song's quiet, serene voice performs this audiobook. Tracing the lives of two Chinese girls from earliest childhood through adulthood, the novel captures moments that include the horrors of foot binding and the delights of true friendship, all in a measured cadence by Song. With the lightest lilt, Song offers a precise, careful performance that does not need extremes to show dialogue shifts or character development. Song navigates the complexities of culture and history with ease, putting enough emphasis on the appropriate words to make it easier for the reader to follow the text.
