"The deeply rooted questions about race, belonging, identity, and travel in this memoir may remind listeners of Barack Obama's DREAMS OF MY FATHER. A female narrator with a strong, declarative voice is an excellent choice for one woman's story of her personal journey to place her multicultural heritage within a modern context. Quincy Bernstine's consistent dramatic persona makes sense of the book's dizzying trajectory, which includes trips to Israel, Ethiopia, and New York, among others. Some may find the delivery unpleasant because the tone is strident and the pace unrelenting. For the most part, though, the intense cadence mirrors the cultural and racial musings of the author--difficult subjects. M.R. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
