This story of estrangement and forgiveness will move listeners. In a smooth voice and steady pace, David Pittu narrates the plight of two families as they confront the devastating effects of the Basque-Spanish conflict. In a Basque country village occupied by militants, Bittori and Miren are lifelong friends. But when Bittori's husband is gunned down by Basque separatists, a group Miren's son belongs to, the families drift apart. Pittu manages to convey the audiobook's narrative despite its nonlinear structure. The greatest challenge is to give each character a unique voice, an aspect Pittu struggles with a bit due to the multitudes involved. Nonetheless, this is an important listen.
