Jasmine Cephas Jones (Peggy from Hamilton!) Reads Isabel Allende’s New Book

Isabel Allende is one of the world’s most well-known and beloved living writers, and the audiobook of her latest, In the Midst of Winter, is read by a wonderful cast that includes Jasmine Cephas Jones! Take a extended listen and take a look at the synopsis below:

In the Midst of Winter begins with a minor traffic accident—which becomes the catalyst for an unexpected and moving love story between two people who thought they were deep into the winter of their lives. Richard Bowmaster—a 60-year-old human rights scholar—hits the car of Evelyn Ortega—a young, undocumented immigrant from Guatemala—in the middle of a snowstorm in Brooklyn. What at first seems just a small inconvenience takes an unforeseen and far more serious turn when Evelyn turns up at the professor’s house seeking help. At a loss, the professor asks his tenant Lucia Maraz—a 62-year-old lecturer from Chile—for her advice. These three very different people are brought together in a mesmerizing story that moves from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil, sparking the beginning of a long overdue love story between Richard and Lucia.”
