Fiction • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listeners follow the story of Stella Fortuna and the different near-death milestones that help define her life, which stretches from childhood in a small village in rural Italy to her new life as an immigrant in America. The story is packed with rich and diverse characters, and Lisa Flanagan's narration helps bring them alive in the imagination of the listener. Her strong characterizations of the Italian characters, both female and male, are particularly notable. The story includes some harrowing and deeply uncomfortable topics, and Flanagan's steady and calm delivery avoids sensationalizing these passages. Her pacing keeps the long work moving and draws the listener into this rich and varied saga. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
