Narrator Catherine Ho portrays three orphaned sisters, one of whom pretends to be a boy, as they come of age. The story is set in the American West during the Gold Rush. Ho provides a lyrical narration, and Joel de la Fuente takes on a single character role. Ho never allows the author's short, brusque sentence structure to trip her up, instead turning that style into a rhythm that rocks and soothes the listener. When characters do speak, Ho dazzles. She slips between the male and female voice of the youngest sister with ease. She also remains true to the speaking patterns of the characters as they age by altering her timbre. The poetic aspects of this audiobook will keep listeners engaged. A.R.F. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
