Julia, the niece of a lemon orchard owner, and Roberto, the orchard farm manager, are drawn to each other after discovering they've both lost daughters in tragic circumstances. Blair Brown's strong, smooth voice engages the listener, bringing out the undercurrent of grief in the protagonists in addition to the uneasiness that arises from their differing social levels. Brown's Spanish accent is credible, and she offers solid portrayals of the many male and female characters. Her pacing and modulated tones are especially effective in conveying the suspense of Julia's search for Roberto's daughter, the harrowing experiences of Mexicans illegally crossing the border, and the fear that persists even after they are in the United States.
