A luminous ensemble brings this delectable audiobook to life. Listeners follow three generations of the Izquierdo family. In 1958, Papa Tavo and Guadalupe moved from Reynosa to McAllen. The Izquierdos are sure a neighbor has placed a curse on them. They attribute all their sadness or bad luck to the curse. But not all the Izquierdos believe in this curse; listeners get a chance to hear different perspectives from various family members. This audiobook also explores themes of family, religion, gender roles, and respect for elders through a traditional and modern lens. The narrators are consummate professionals who easily switch from English to Spanish, use various accents flawlessly, and create distinct and unique voices for each family member. Overall, the cast creates a rich and rewarding listening experience. A.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
