Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

A Costa Rican family's generational trauma impacts their descendants in ways they don't fully understand because of secrets that have never been shared. Adriana Sananes adopts both Spanish and English accents throughout the complex dynamics of five generations who were affected by the exploitation of the Great American Fruit Company. The corruption of the U.S. banana company left many Costa Rican men infertile. This epic tale includes despondent men abandoning their families, suicides, arson, a hurricane, and passionate love affairs. Despite Sananes's excellent narration, listeners may experience some difficulty keeping the storyline clear. L.J.C.A. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
