About this audiobook

When Malena Sevilla's tidy, carefully planned world collapses following her father’s mysterious suicide, she finds a letter--signed with an “A”--that reveals that her mother, who she thought dead, is very much alive in San Isidro, a quaint town tucked in the Andes Mountains. Intent on meeting her, Malena arrives at Alameda Street and meets four sisters who couldn’t be more different from one another, but who share one thing in common: all of their names begin with an A. To avoid a scandal, Malena assumes another woman’s identity and enters their home to discover the truth. Could her mother be Amanda, the iconoclastic widow who opens the first tango nightclub in a conservative town? Ana, the ideal housewife with a less-than-ideal past? Abigail, the sickly sister in love with a forbidden man? Or Alejandra, the artistic introvert scarred by her cousin’s murder? But living a lie will bring Malena additional problems, such as falling for the wrong man and loving a family she may lose when they learn of her deceit. Worse, her arrival threatens to expose long-buried secrets and a truth that may wreck her life forever. Set in 1960s Ecuador, The Sisters of Alameda Street is a sweeping story of how one woman’s search for the truth of her identity forces a family to confront their own past.

    The further I got into it, the more I liked it. Sometimes the suspense would get to me and I’d need to take a break but I always came back to it. The twists and turns were interesting and the author did a wonderful job with the way the plot unfolded.

    Great book that caught my attention immediately and kept me interested and intrigued the entire time. The characters and the storyline are well developed and grounded in human experience in a way that is relatable across cultural, societal, and temporal boundaries. Narrator is excellent as well!

    This was amazing! Talk about love triangle. The writing style reminded me a lot of Next Year in Havana which is a book I love. Not a predictable story at all.
