Bilingual voice artist Marisa Blake narrates with a lovely warmth that makes this combination biography/personal growth audio as delightful to hear as it is inspiring to absorb. Her beguiling tone and phrasing draw people into the world of Frida Kahlo, the Mexican-born painter who overcame the crippling effects of polio and a disfiguring bus accident to become an international symbol of fearless creativity and style. Her life (1907-1954) was celebrated in a 2002 movie starring Salma Hayek, her paintings sold for millions, and she has inspired rock musicians and A-list celebrities. Both narrator and author convey reverence for their subject, making this a powerful and touching way to understand why Kahlo's talent and courage still resonate with today's artistic cognoscenti and women's advocates.
