Nkeki Obi-Melekwe and Gary Tiedemann offer an entertaining narration of this love story between a Nigerian-Canadian woman named Azere and a Spanish-Canadian man named Rafael. The two narrators are playful and dramatic at times, reflecting the cultural differences the protagonists face in their blossoming relationship. Although Obi-Melekwe speaks far more than Tiedemann, his heartfelt voice is pivotal in conveying a perspective that brings balance to the story. Obi-Melekwe goes in and out of accents, emphasizing the intertwining nature of different cultures. It is quite easy to visualize this romantic story, given the performance. Warmth, anger, laughter, joy, and, without question, love lift Igharo's words right off the page and into listeners' hearts. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2021]
