Narrator Adjoa Andoh's lilting accents and rich voice add to the sensory details of this novel set in Ghana. Andoh's reading of this first-person story projects a sense of drama that increases during the dialogue as she depicts and differentiates characters. Sixteen-year-old Amerley, the oldest of four girls, has always been responsible for her siblings. To improve her family's financial situation, she agrees to work for a relative. In their home, Amerley's economic and social inequality are marked, but she adjusts. Then she's raped by one of the sons of the woman who hired her. Eventually, Amerley speaks up--even when her voice shakes. A powerful story, a convincing heroine, and a view of Ghana seldom seen in a U.S. S.W. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
