by | Read by Cristina Arsuaga

Spanish Audio • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

Secretos y sentimientos se mezclan en esta novela. La joven Lily vive afligida por la muerte de su madre, y se siente culpable. Desea recordar algún momento de alegría en la vida de su madre, pero solo tiene la escena borrosa de su muerte. Lily y su madrastra emprenderán una aventura hacia un lugar que desconocen, donde Lily encontrará lo que ha estado buscando. Con una lectura clara, Cristina Arsuaga, que asemeja ser una pequeña niña, es en ocasiones tan inocente. Capturando también tonalidades diversas en su voz, logrando recrear los diferentes personajes, y otorgando al lector una serie de sensaciones y emociones, que dejan un nudo en la garganta. M.B.M. 2006 Audie Award Finalist

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--This emotional novel mixes secrets and feelings. The young Lily lives afflicted by the death of her mother and suffers from unrepressed guilt. She tries to remember a single moment of happiness in her mother’s life but only retains a blurred scene of her death. Lily and her stepmother undertake an adventure to an unknown place, where the child finds what she seeks. In her clear voice, Cristina Arsuaga, on occasions so innocently, makes herself a small child. She also captures other tones of voice to create personalities that bestow the listener with a mixture of sensations and emotions strong enough to leave a lump in the throat.
