Narrator Frankie Corzo conjures equal parts beauty and terror in this thrilling tale of magical realism. Orquidea Divina has always been surrounded by strange luck and odd circumstances. But when she calls her estranged family home to receive their inheritance, they begin to discover the roots of a curse that stretches back over decades. Corzo matches her dreamy tones to the story's lush imagery of magical gardens, fantastical circuses, and monsters both human and otherworldly. She deftly handles the dialogue of Orquidea's sprawling generations of ancestors and descendants, giving them an air of connection while making each character distinct. Corzo also keeps the listener grounded in the story despite the constant shifts in time and place as its short chapters unfold. N.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
