You can hear the compassion in narrator Ariana Delawari's voice as she tells the story of Rose and Gameela--Egyptian sisters who choose different paths that determine one's life and the other's death. When Gameela is killed by a suicide bomber in Cairo not long after Egypt's revolution, Rose is left reeling with guilt and unanswered questions about Gameela's life after Rose left for New York City to pursue her doctorate in Egyptology. Delawari seamlessly provides the many character voices, all distinct without being exaggerated, immersing the listener in conversations in a way that sounds authentic and natural.. She also deftly handles the many Egyptian names. A beautiful, emotional listen. R.K.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
