Narrator Coral Pena emigrated from the Dominican Republic to the U.S. as a young woman. The heroine of this audiobook, Adana, did the same thing. This matters because a sense of place and identity are important in this impressive literary mystery. The story follows Adana as she moves to New Orleans and writes a science fiction/fantasy bestseller. Two generations later, her grandson and a friend seek a manuscript that may be the only copy of Adana's unpublished second novel. Pena gives listeners strong female characters, accents matched to the story's multicultural speakers, and moments of cosmic contemplation.
