Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Janina Edwards draws listeners in to a complex story that offers an up-close view of the slave trade in the nineteenth century. She pulls out all the stops for this heartrending coming-of-age story about Aminah, a young Ghanaian woman. Listeners will appreciate Edwards's lively delivery and her strong portrayals of both male and female characters. Her repertoire includes a range of accents and pronunciations that help listeners differentiate Ghanaians and non-natives. They will be caught up as Aminah is abducted and listen breathlessly as she encounters the privileged Wurche, whose father's tribe are slave owners. Edwards leads us expertly by the ear through both points of view in this historical novel. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
