Ann Marie Lee's singsong intonation expresses the feminine spirit at the heart of Janice Y.K. Lee's long awaited new novel. With precision the narrator portrays three female expatriates whose lives intertwine in Hong Kong. Her elongated words and intentional pace evoke listener responses ranging from curiosity to shock. Using nuances of tone, she illuminates the thematic relationship between Margaret's tragedy, involving her son, and Mercy's scatterbrained path to motherhood. There's also Hilary's relentless drive to become a mother, which leads her to come together with the other two characters--at times, humorously so. Author and narrator blend perfectly to convey a powerful journey of love, loss, and growth. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2016]
