Fiction • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

This deeply moving family drama weaves together the lives of several generations of a Chinese family, beginning at the time of the Cultural Revolution. Katharine Chin's emotional range is particularly impressive as she seamlessly transitions among different time periods and perspectives, anchoring listeners to each moment in the story. From Yunhong, one of the star-crossed lovers at the story's start, to her great granddaughter, Emily, listeners are immersed in this rich exploration of family, identity, and resilience. Chin does a masterful job of balancing the family's tragedies and hopes. Listeners will be compelled to move through each generation's struggle to make sense of the family's persistent secrets.
