An illuminating account of the life of African saint Josephine Margaret Bakhita, canonized in 2000, is enhanced by Bahni Turpin's compelling narration. Weaving together an audible tapestry of diverse voices and historical places, Turpin's steady cadence effortlessly ushers listeners into a past world. She invites them to walk alongside Bakhita from her childhood in Darfur in the 1870s to her elder years in Italy. Turpin infuses young Bakhita's tone with anguish and quiet determination as she suffers through life as a slave. After she gains her freedom and enters the novitiate of the Canossian Sisters, Bakhita's voice settles into a calm rhythm and soft tone full of love for those around her. Turpin's additional performances as the varying characters in Bakhita's life are phenomenal, her accents and emphases consistent throughout the audiobook.
