excellent narrator

Good story well told. Harrowing and reply sad. Emotive unique. Wonderful to be immersed in the lives of a family in Nigeria even though the sadness so hard to bear.

The dangers of self-fulfilling prophecy lyrically told

This is a beautifully written book that is deep and meaningful, with a story that gripped me. Every time I had to put it down I desperately wanted to know what would happen next and continued to think about, and worry about, the characters.
I also really enjoyed the reading given here. I'm new to audiobooks and thought this narration was perfect, just what I'm looking for from this medium.
