Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Marisol Ramirez's beautifully expressive narration pairs perfectly with author Ingrid Rojas Contreras's compelling exploration of the powerful connections between memory and family. From a vibrant, tumultuous Colombian childhood to a new beginning abroad, the author's connection with Nono, her grandfather, remained central. Ramirez expresses the complexity of emotions contained within these stories of the author's maternal grandparents and extended family as she travels with her mother back to Colombia in order to fulfill a dream-inspired imperative to exhume Nono's body. Ramirez's keen characterizations, especially for Mami and Rojas Contreras, are full of warmth and heart. Together, they give weight and texture to the forms that memory takes on. An incredible journey listeners will not soon forget. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
