Cassandra Campbell's evocative account of the adoption of an older Chinese girl who is blind by Americans Meg and Lewis Lindsey is compelling and realistic. Many scenes may move listeners to tears. Campbell’s exceptional performance offers three voices and viewpoints—that of the the mother, Meg, and those of children Wen Ming and her best friend, Zhen An. Campbell deftly portrays the adoptive parents and defines the children's loving Chinese caregivers with soft inflections and accents. East meets West in this fictional tribute to international adoption, a must for anyone considering such a path. The story includes an interview with the author and her adopted Chinese daughter, Jessamine, who aspires to be a doctor. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2010]
