A trio of narrators lures listeners into a complex portrait of a part-Cuban family in 1980s coastal Texas. Exploring first loves and past traumas under the overprotective eye of their mother, Carrie, teenagers Joaquin and Elena ping-pong between obedience, provocation, and fantasy. Mathieu's characters are complex in their secrecy, and the narrators bring an enthralling genuineness to their performances. Curevo's Carrie is filled with longing, bitterness, and hurt. Liatis and Barillas convincingly voice their young characters' motivations. Each character's passions are keenly felt, making their emotional reveals quiet and powerful. This intimate listen will leave listeners feeling truly connected to the Finney family and their desire to live with life's blessings and its disappointments.
