Father Ignaz (Ygnacio) Pfefferkorn, a missionary from the Sonora Desert region of northern Mexico, is caught in the Expulsion of all Jesuits in 1767. After enduring eight years of prison and abuse, he is incarcerated in Caridad Monastery where the abbot recruits him to help solve two murders. In the course of his investigations, Father Ignaz finds his own life in peril.
If you could sum up The Storks of La Caridad in three words, what would they be?
Alive, Engaging, Real
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Storks of La Caridad?
Throughout, the way the tension builds incrementally without seeming forced or contrived
What about Fred Filbrich’s performance did you like?
How one voice can bring to life the interior and exterior of so many characters is a mystery to me.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I sat in the parking lot (of my destination) for 45 minutes to finish the chapter I had just begun when I arrived. It was that good.
Any additional comments?
I don't like audio books. I prefer the "feel" of a paper book in my hands, and I was skeptical about this on in particular because I had so enjoyed "Storks" when I read it some years ago. But THIS audio book was "the impossible dream" .. and audio book that moved as quickly and as surely as original. Weinberg's Pfefferkorn has found the perfect voice in Filbrich, and comes alive in a new way. I cannot say enough good things about this merging. I enjoyed it on several levels.
