Narrator Kellie Jones brings to life the bleak world of the Afghan refugee in Australia. Listeners learn of Gulnessa and her family, who have fled persecution in Afghanistan. In Australia they find their troubles have just begun. In relaying Gulnessa's story, Jones deftly switches from the accents of the Middle Eastern refugees to the accents of the Australian characters, never missing a beat in this harrowing story. Through Gulnessa's tragedy and triumph, listeners become enmeshed in a largely unknown world. The book ends with a lovely author's note that explains her impetus for writing this story. Though the unabridged version runs a little long, this most enlightening audio journey illuminates the human spirit. M.R.P. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
