Eunice Wong's melodic narration weaves a tapestry of images from this historical tale. Ami has always lived on Culion, an island to which people touched by leprosy, like her mother, are banished. When Mr. Zamora, a malicious government official, removes all untouched children from their parents and sends them to a different island, Ami fights to find her way home again. Wong balances the tender aspects of Ami, who adores her mother and longs for her community, against the growing anger she harbors towards those who stand in her way. Mr. Zamora's voice has a perfect tone of officiousness that demonstrates his lack of interest in anyone's opinion but his own. Wong does justice to the author's descriptions of the lush landscape of the Philippines. N.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
