WOW - emotional and gripping

This is the first novel that I have read/listened to by Patry Francis. I loved how the story spanned so many decades. I especially like how the narrator did all the children's voices and then moved into adulthood. The snarkiness but empathy with Mila was really impressive in the very last part of the book. I felt like I could hear my own teenager in her sarcastic yet vulnerable state. That's great writing. I could not believe that she let her mom go the first time though!!!! That was really, really frustrating at first.

I'd recommend this for a summer beach day!

Blown Away!

If you could sum up The Orphans of Race Point in three words, what would they be?

Epic, Mysterious, Romantic


Have you listened to any of Cobb Amanda’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This narrator was terrific. I have listened to other books by her, but I think she is really coming into her own and doing more precise character voices which is really fun to hear. So great with the Portuguese! And shifting narrators? Points of view? Children's voices!? That takes skill, man. Awesome!


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I admit that I teared up once or twice, but I felt more outrage at the brutality of the circumstances. And the father with the kid at the end!? How could the daughter still be so nice to him!?? ARGH.


Any additional comments?

Great ride. It sucked me in.
