Raquel Beattie narrates this unsettling tale loosely based on the Mexican legend of La Llorona, the crying woman. Alejandra is a housewife with a wealthy husband and three beautiful children, yet she feels lonely and unsettled. She and her children start to see and hear an apparition. Unbeknownst to her, a demon has terrorized the women in her family since the Spanish Conquest of Mexico. Beattie infuses the character of Alejandra with an emotional range that listeners will find believable. Beattie successfully voices Alejandra's doubt, frustration, and fear, helping listeners empathize with her despite her seemingly full life. Listeners will especially appreciate Beattie's portrayal of the demon. Her voice becomes breathy and eerie, which is perfect for the mood and themes of this audiobook.
