Fiction • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Four narrators work together in this multigenerational story of migration, love, and loss. Janet Song, Intae Kim, Greta Jung, and Raymond J. Lee create balance to this lyrical story set amid the making of the two Koreas. They bring to life the struggles of Insuk and her turbulent romance and then marriage to Sungho. The female and male narrators trade a wide variety of perspectives, including Insuk's and Sungho's, at various key historical moments. Listeners might find this slightly disorienting as the main story, taking place in the U.S, is mixed in with vignettes happening on the Korean peninsula. In these moments, Greta Jung's voice serves as an anchor, filling in Insuk's tumultuous life with heartfelt drama and empathy. M.R. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2024]
