Soneela Nankani gives a magnificent performance of this lively and heartwarming second-chance romance. Jana, a South Asian Canadian single mother of 4-year-old Imani, has been cautious with dating since her brief fling with Imani's father, Anil. Then, Jana, Anil, and Imani are invited to their close friends, Kamila and Rohan's, two-week destination wedding in Tanzania. Listeners will vividly imagine Tanzania's sights and sounds, and, especially, its tastes, as wonderfully evoked by Nankani's delicious food descriptions. Kamila and her bridesmaids encourage Jana to compile a "letting go" list. While performing the activities, Jana finds herself reconnecting with Anil. Nankani smoothly transitions among the large cast, creating layered depictions of each character. Steeped in the cultures of South Asia and East Africa, this relatable romance is a listening treat.
