Narrator Tovah Ott provides a warm performance of this coming-of-age audiobook about a Ugandan girl's journey to find her mother. Ott's sonorous voice brings rural 1970s Uganda to life. Tomboyish Kirabo is frustrated by the traditional expectations placed on her by her grandmother. Consulting the town witch provides more questions than answers, and before she can figure out the tumultuous relationship between her grandmother and the witch, Kirabo's previously absent father takes her to live with him so she can go to boarding school. Ott's impressive modulation provides distinct voices for multiple characters, fully immersing listeners in a patriarchal society full of strong women. The many family secrets and explorations of tradition will resonate with listeners. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
