Fiction • 14.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

This simply titled novel follows the complex journey of a young woman’s growth, trials, and redemption. Allende’s skill lies in telling a story that is simultaneously accessible and thought provoking. The listener is drawn in by a compelling tale and held there by poetic language. Narrator Maria Cabezas has a youthful voice that can nearly break hearts with its blend of innocence and experience. Her performance as Maya is perfectly believable. Essentially abandoned by her parents and devastated by the death of her beloved grandfather, Maya must find her way back from the ravages of self-destructive behaviors and move ahead with life. Cabezas makes us root for Maya, no matter her choices; in the end, we want only the best for her. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2013]
