Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

This epic novel sweeps across time and the Americas, keeping the listener riveted every step of the way. Blair Brown, a natural narrator, gives an ideal performance as she relates the tale of Aurora del Valle, a young woman who tries to reassemble her past in order to face the future. The story begins essentially two generations earlier, with characters who journey from Chile to San Francisco and back again. The listener meets endearing, engaging, and unique characters who all play a role in Aurora's upbringing. Brown captures the humor, tragedy, and drama of the novel with great style, mastering the wide variety of accents without intruding on the story. This audiobook is a wonderful package--an engrossing novel read by a master performer! L.B.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
