You Bring the Distant Near by Mitali Perkins is an interesting story of a family that emigrated from India to London and then to the U.S. in the ’70s. The story’s focus is on three generations of women and their experiences while trying to find their place in a new home. Hopes, dreams, relationships – it’s all there! The e-audio format is a lovely way to experience the story.
