Fiction • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Joana Garcia is an excellent choice for this novel about familial and ancestral trauma. She conveys the difficulties Rufina faces as she tries to keep her half-brother, Rafa, alive. Listeners are drawn into this reckoning as the two wrestle with their mother's past. Garcia maximizes the drama in each scene as ghosts and angels populate the narrative alongside the human characters. She deftly switches from character to character, capturing the richness of the prose in her performance. Garcia takes us into a world of mystery and secrets as we hang on her every word to see what happens next. She is a master storyteller who elevates the story through her performance.
