Narrator James Chen transports listeners to a quiet Dallas suburb in Han's literary fiction debut. Patty and Liang Cheng came to the U.S. from China and achieved the American dream in a short time. But several misunderstandings caused by their daughter, Annabel, suddenly turn their lives upside down. Chen's voice is smooth and pleasant--his speed and rhythm jibe with the laid-back pace of the story. At some point, though, listeners may think that there's nothing happening as the conflict the immigrant family experiences unfolds ever so gradually. Be assured that persevering listeners of insightful stories are in for a treat. A.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2021]
