Narrator Christina Moore tells this unusual story of conversion and migration, based on real-life events, with feeling and emphasis. However, her her pitch, tone, and rhythm are steady—perhaps too steady. The limitation of this style of narration is that it can become monotonous at times and distance the listener from the story. For a cultural and spiritual journey such as this, one wishes for a softer tone or approach, but perhaps Moore is embodying the woman behind the story, who certainly comes across with a large degree of fortitude and persistence. Those who are drawn into the details of the story will overlook any monotony and instead respond to Moore’s zeal as she depicts each discovery of the protagonist.
