I found the book very moving and well done. It was a wonderful story of a relationship that few people are lucky enough to have.
I had no favorite character. Both Rosa and Ofelia were fully developed and appealing.
I thought that Linda Kerr did an excellent job in evoking Rosa and Ofelia. Each was distinct and believable. Linda brought the protagonists to life. I was never bored.
There were so many moving moments in the book that it is hard to pinpoint just one. In general I found it quite moving that Rosa and Ofelia were so compatible and devoted to each other in so many ways. I was impressed that they knew enough to treasure every moment together.
Full disclosure: I have been acquainted with Ofelia and Rosa, and had seen some of their plays, at least two directed by my husband. That being said, I think that my review is objective. I had already read "Tropicana Nights", a book about Ofelia's life. I also had found the print version of "Nosotras" to be fascinating and moving. I wanted to hear the audio performed, as I know Linda. She did a wonderful job, and through the reading I could easily envision the real Rosa and Ofelia.
I think this book should be the definitive statement on the legitimacy of gay love and marriage and should be part of the standard literature on this matter. Anyone who wants to ban gay marriage should educate him/herself by reading this book.
