Narrator Anne Flosnik adopts an accented, hushed tone for the character of Onyesonwu, whose mixed race is the focal point of this story of warring tribes somewhere in Africa at some time in the future. Born of the rape of her mother by a sorcerer, she begins her life wandering in the desert, and after a number of years of living in a village, she returns to a life in the desert. There her nascent talent for magic develops, and she moves closer and closer to a confrontation with her birth father. Flosnik quietly follows the subdued moods of Onyesonwu through her adolescence and the beginning of her journey. As the drama intensifies, Flosnik accentuates the suspense of Onyesonwu’s struggle to survive. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
