Edoardo Ballerini is in excellent form as he provides a gripping performance that captures the backdrop of historical events. Lilith is born into the omnipresent terror of Nazi Germany. Her mother eventually makes the heartbreaking choice to send her, alone, to Cuba, for the possibility of a better life. Once there, Lilith embarks on a second life, never knowing what happened to her mother while becoming a mother herself. Correa's audiobook covers a great deal of intergenerational detail, creating a listening experience that feels epic in scope. Listeners are transported from Germany to Cuba and New York City before reaching the conclusion. Ballerini's masterful presentation enhances the emotional impact of the final passages. S.P.C.
