Hana and Kei are mixed-race twins who were raised in Hawaii. Driven apart by tragedy, Hana settles in New York, as far as she can get from her sister and their memories. Narrator Christine Lakin draws listeners into this family drama involving a backdrop of historical horrors, including the internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII. Her narration is full of feelings that reflect the precarious nature of immigrant identity in the 1940s. The contemporary themes in this story further engage listeners with the hardships of Lillie, the twins' mother. Lakin is a talented performer whose versatility allows her to portray grandmothers and children with equal vigor. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
