Those who enjoy literary fiction will fall in love with Claudia Alick's energetic narration of a complex story. Set in a traditional Nigerian household, the novel includes a myriad of women—from aunties, to grandmothers, and the protagonist herself. Yet there’s never a moment one feels lost. Alick brings the Nigerian characters to life with authentic diction and a lively cadence, and her treatment of the dialogue keeps the listener engaged. She brings out the full dramatic potential of the richly developed plot, reading with feeling the moments that affect the child protagonist. The listener is in capable hands throughout this story of tradition and betrayal in modern-day Nigeria. M.R. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2013]
