Author Deborah Tannen's sentimental exploration of her father's letters makes this audiobook one that listeners will enjoy and remember. Tannen's delivery is warm, filled with love, and ideally paced for savoring. The story begins in Warsaw, Poland, continues through her father's journey to the United States, and concludes with her discoveries within his many letters, many of which changed her perspective. Listeners will remember the audiobook because it demonstrates how, despite the passage of more than a century, immigrants continue to overcome obstacles as they strive to adapt to American culture. Although the audiobook focuses on Tannen's father, it goes deeper. The stories of her parents' courtship and the travails he overcomes professionally make this listen memorable.
