Sofia Quintero's performance of this audiobook is compelling. Listeners are drawn into her first-person portrayal of Marisol, who encourages her nephew, Ramón, to solve a mystery with a twist: Marisol died during the Cuban Revolution, and Ramón is living in present-day New Jersey. Listeners come to know Marisol's ghost, particularly her empathetic voice, which Quintero effectively provides. Ramón--by day a hospital orderly, by night a club DJ--comes to discover his heritage, eventually making his way to Cuba with the help of Marisol's spiritual interventions, seeking answers about his life and Marisol's death. The journey is complicated, but Quintero's performance skillfully places listeners in the locales of revolution-era Cuba and its contemporary--yet segregated and bureaucratic--counterpart. S.P.C.
