Mili is an Indian child bride when we first meet her. Her ambition to live in America is both humorous and lovable because of Priya Ayyar's talent as a narrator. With an upbeat and lively tempo, Ayyar dramatizes the unexpected ways Indian values contradict with modern American life. Her narration resounds with humor and vitality throughout this sprawling story. Her dialogue captures Indian-accented English in an authentic-sounding manner. She entertains the listener with a rapid pace, and her energy infuses a wide-ranging cast peppered with people of both genders and multiple ages. The listener maintains interest in the development of the story as it moves from one country to another. M.R. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2015]
