Through narrator Laurence Bouvard's varied performance, listeners are treated to a family saga and a history of the development of Oman. Mayya, Asma, and Khawla are three sisters whose lives and concerns are vividly brought to life by Bouvard. She is a talented female narrator who is up for the challenge of depicting these very different women with distinct personalities. Listeners are brought into shy Mayya's inner thoughts by a soft, contemplative voice. Asma sounds much much more strident as she claims her rights in a male-dominated society. As Khawla, Bouvard seethes at the frustrations of a life dictated by others. Fans of world literature will sink into the large cast of characters and rich setting.
