THE BOOK OF ROSY A Mother's Story of Separation at the Border

by | Read by Almarie Guerra, Jayme Mattler

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrators Almarie Guerra and Jayme Mattler create a heartbreaking portrait of a mother's detention and forced separation from her sons under this country's recent zero tolerance immigration policy. This compelling memoir alternates between the perspectives of the two authors. Guatemalan Rosayra Pablo Cruz is portrayed by Guerra. Her voice is clear and strong, but breaks in moments when she expresses both Cruz's unwavering faith and the extreme deprivation and terror she experienced in her homeland and during her harrowing escape. The fervent activism and fundraising efforts of Julie Schwietert Collazo, a founder of Immigrant Families Together, are sensitively conveyed by Mattler. The comfortable pacing of both narrators allows listeners to fully invest in this stirring call to action. M.J. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
