This audiobook blurs the line between fiction and nonfiction as the author illuminates the story of Tsuneno, a young woman who lived in nineteenth-century Japan. Joy Osmanski does a fine job of telling this well-researched story; her voice is measured and reserved, maintaining a steady pace as Tsuneno journeys from birth through a series of marriages. Osmanski offers confident pronunciations and navigates the information-packed text with ease. Her delivery is comfortable with the amount of detail being presented, and her gentle voice moves from chapter to chapter without a hitch. This audiobook is well produced, but the density of the subject matter may be an issue for some. The devoted listener will likely be enchanted.
