Young Adult Audiobook Review: We Are All That’s Left

We Are All That’s Left

We Are All That’s Left
Laura Knight Keating and Elisabeth Rodgers skillfully narrate the story of a mother and daughter who are both coping with the aftereffects of political tension, terrorism, and war. Zara’s relationship with her mother, a refugee, has always been discordant. When a terrorist attack in Rhode Island leaves her mother in a coma, Zara loses the chance to fix their strained relationship and must find another way to dig into her painful past before it’s too late. Both Keating and Rodgers are exceptional storytellers who make each scene vivid to the listener. Keating’s voice is silvery, while Rodgers’s is solemn. Together, they make this multigenerational novel about love, loss, and healing from Bosnia and Herzegovina to America even more affecting.
