Yinka Ladeinde elevates a delightful story to new heights with impeccable comic timing and her ability to convey a wide range of characters. She brings the many members of a Nigerian Canadian family to life with infectious energy and charm. Joy is preparing for her mother Mama Mary's 70th birthday, when the matriarch unexpectedly dies before the celebration. When Joy's Aunt Nancy insists that her sister will rise from the grave three days later, Joy is both exasperated and secretly hopeful. Ladeinde navigates the intricacies of a tale that mixes grief and family dynamics. She smoothly delivers this exploration of loss, religion, and the ties that bind us. Ladeinde transforms this unique multigenerational story into an unforgettable listening experience. M.R. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
