Narrator Angela Lin captures the tribulations and regrets of Wang Di. As a Singaporean teenager, Wang Di was forced into serving as a comfort woman, a sexual slave, for Japanese troops during WWII. Lin's evocative voice stirs up sympathy for this strong woman, and the real-life women she is based on, as Wang DI recollects the horrors she survived. Narrator Ryun Yu is the perfect complement as 12-year-old Kevin, who nurses his aging grandmother. Listeners experience two very different lives as the pair trade portions of the story back and forth. Fans of historical fiction will relish learning about this aspect of WWII through such an artistically performed audiobook. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
