Jennifer Klinec's audiobook is a food memoir woven into an account of forbidden romance. Laurence Bouvard narrates in a light tone while describing Klinec's culinary adventures. Then, when the author makes a sharp turn from food to love, Bouvard's voice seems too musical for the topic: a secret romance in repressive Iran. Furthermore, Bouvard's pace and delivery of Iranian accents distract listeners from full involvement. Still, Klinec's story may prompt tears at its close. And listeners may be so intrigued by her descriptions of food and Iranian streets that they are inspired to learn more about this culture.
