Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Emily Woo Zeller

Romantic Fiction • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Emily Woo Zeller narrates a deeply moving love story between two passionate and strong-willed individuals from its emotionally devastating lows to its profoundly satisfying conclusion. Khai Diep is convinced he is incapable of feeling, and, therefore, has no need of a wife. Esme Tran, despite numerous obstacles, jumps at the chance to meet a potential husband who is American. Zeller perfectly captures Esme’s journey from naïve country girl to determined young woman as she navigates a new country, a new living situation, and a complicated new relationship. Similarly, she skillfully portrays Khai’s slow and painful progress as he realizes that he does indeed possess very deep feelings. Zeller’s comfort with the occasional Vietnamese phrases adds another layer of realism to the story. K.M.P.
