Manjula Martin delivers this audiobook as if reading to a friend. While she's not blessed with a sonorous voice, her delivery is both passionate and authentic. She captures the complications of living in proximity to wildfires in Sonoma County, California, which was devastated by conflagrations in 2020. The audiobook presents three interlocking stories: The first is about a series of failed operations to remove a broken IUD and the continual pain that Martin lives with. Next is an account of life in the orbit of wildfires, including preparations for evacuations and the effects of fire season on the residents' daily lives. Finally, there's the story of fire itself: how it works and how those who deal with it study it, combat it, and learn from it. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
