Having grown up believing that her father had been killed in the war, Selena sees a picture of a man on a book jacket who resembles him so much that she travels to Spain on her own to find him. Narrator Jan Carey is superb at producing the innocence and naïveté of the young Selena, as well as her frustration and yearning as she searches for her father and comes to terms with her own feelings. She also portrays George, the object of Selena's quest, with all the qualities of a likable rogue. The enthusiasm that comes through in Carey's performance makes up for any flaws with the Spanish and American accents of minor characters.
