Would you try another book from Tim McNeese and/or Roxanne Hernandez?

absolutely not

Has Isabel Allende turned you off from other books in this genre?

Silly question

How could the performance have been better?

The reader didn't have a lot to work with, to be fair.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was short

Any additional comments?

I accidentally bought this book trying to purchase House of the Spirits (now why isn't that available on audible?). It's absolute drivel. It sounds like the author skimmed a Wikipedia page, then fabricated some emotions onto Allende and called it done.

It was very interesting to learn more about Isabel Allende's life and some of the stories behind some of her books!
