Narrator Ewan Chung tells the story of a girl named Sisi through the eyes of her younger brother, Da. The pair are trying to survive Chairman Mao's Cultural Revolution in China during the 1960s. Since their family used to hold wealth and position, they are now struggling to be accepted in their community and are shamed because the old social structure has been turned on its head. With clear and precise pacing, Chung creates a passionate portrayal of Da and Sisi during intense moments of violence and the humiliation of those they hold dear. Listeners will be moved by this narrative, which reflects a difficult time in China's history. M.D. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
