This audiobook collection sparkles with wit and wisdom. Mostly set in Denver, Colorado, these short stories present a range of narrative styles that give them individuality and create a unique listening experience. In the title story, narrator Roxana Ortega vividly portrays various female characters, mainly Mexican-Americans. Marisol Ramirez, does excellent work in "Any Further West," her intonation beautifully capturing the 13-year-old narrator. Kyla Garcia's delivery of "Remedies" features a fine rendering of an elderly woman who dispenses herbs and advice to her family members. Often dark but always compelling, these contemporary tales encapsulate the Hispanic-American urban experience. All portray women who are navigating the terrain of the heart. Kali Fajardo-Anstine writes with grace and authenticity, and the narrators provide a wealth of fine readings. A.D.M.
