Camacho, he introduces himself. Jim asks the embassy fellows, who nod for Camacho to join them. He strides over, smiling hugely, one pink palm clapped on a revolver, another patting his belt of ammo.
Camacho, he introduces himself. He is a tall man, heart-stoppingly handsome, a rich mahogany color, with long-fingered hands, which when he turns them up in answer to questions he can’t answer are endearingly pink. His teeth flash white. They all make room for him in their now segregated American huddle.

Don Francisco had brought us here, so he must take us back. But Viceroy Iturrigaray had practically forbidden him to return. I recalled our director’s words in Acapulco; he had not included himself when he had assured me that I would return to New Spain. Still, with our director’s departure, everything would be diminished, like Margarita’s reduction of the world by qualifying everything as little. It was a necessary change, but there was nostalgia still in me for that grander measure that had propelled me out of my old life toward America.

Written by Julia Alvarez. Narrated by Blanca Camacho. A finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award with In the Time of Butterflies, author Julia Alvarez is a beloved voice in modern fiction and poetry. In Saving the World, she weaves the stories of two courageous women-separated by two centuries-into a breathtaking novel of love and idealism in an increasingly troubled world. A best-selling, Latin-American author living in Vermont, Alma stays behind when her husband travels to the Dominican Republic to help fight AIDS. She needs the time to work on her latest book, but she has terrible writer’s block.

Julia Alvarez's writing boasts richness, poetic vision, and lyric detail, although her artfulness sometimes occurs at the expense of clarity. Even with a first-rate performance by Blanca Camacho, the multilayered loses its way. Camacho makes the most of Alvarez's two main plots and tangled subplots, but this is a time when less would have been more. Trade Ed., Recorded Books, 2006.

Help us light up the world without using a single drop of fossil fuel!. This book will save lives. Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Book of Joan.
Help us light up the world without using a single drop of fossil fuel! This book will save lives. A powerful memoir, heart-wrenching, inspiring, thoroughly engrossing, reminiscent of Mary Karr’s The Liar’s Club, Maya Angelou’s I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, and more recently Tara Westover’s Educated.

Written by Julia Alvarez, Audiobook narrated by Blanca Camacho.
Everywhere she looks, she feels implicated by the dozens upon dozens of little perks and privileges her life is built upon. She enters the bright, cleanser-smelling room with its bank of mirrors, its stalls with backup rolls that drop into place to offer more paper when the bottom one is used up, the extra hand towels held together by a brown band and stacked atop the too-full dispenser
