Cassandra Campbell's narration of the compelling places and people in this novel will engage listeners. With inspiration taken from her own family history, Messud's captivating audiobook spans seven decades, beginning in the 1940s, and traces several members of the Cassar family. Opening with the German invasion of France, this epic story is both a geographic journey and a generational one as the family members find themselves having to navigate the geopolitical climate, fulfill expectations, and find a home. Campbell paints a perfect visual picture for listeners. However, the accents of the multinational and multiethnic characters can be a bit distracting as some are done much better than others.
