Ana Osorio's narration has hints of Spanish accents, which reflect the Argentinian-Bolivian background of 19-year-old Inez Olivera. Osorio stresses Inez's emotions--her longing for adventure and for her parents, who spend six months a year in Cairo. Their deaths propel headstrong Inez's journey to Egypt, where Osorio gently describes the lavishness of its nineteenth-century hotels and antiquities. She infuses her narration with Inez's feelings as she discovers her attraction to Whit, who works for her uncle. Periodically, Ahmed Hamad delivers Whit's chapters, adding clarity to his viewpoints. Twists and turns mark this audio, which includes an epilogue that sets the stage for a planned sequel. S.W.
