The epic romance of Utsu and Matsuhito resumes itself decades later, when they meet as vagrants so transformed by time that they no longer recognize each other; they are reunited through their mystical connection to a pair of snow foxes that are their only company in the Japanese wilderness. The heartbreaking story of their renewed love is fraught by the Japanese concept of mono no aware—life's ephemeral nature—that weighs on the lovers.

pale version of memories of a geisha
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The narrator should have been Japanese. The story was trite and melodramatic, maybe it got better by the end but I didn't want to waste any more time on it.
Would you ever listen to anything by Susan Fromberg Schaeffer again?
