The internationally acclaimed author of The House on Mango Street gives us a deeply moving tale of loss, grief, and healing. The word 'orphan' might not seem to apply to a fifty-three-year-old woman. Yet this is exactly how Sandra feels as she finds herself motherless, alone like 'a glove left behind at the bus station.' What just might save her is her search for someone else gone missing: Marie, the black-and-white cat of her friend, Roz, who ran off the day they arrived from Tacoma. As Sandra and Roz scour the streets of San Antonio, posting flyers and asking everywhere, 'Have you seen Marie?' the pursuit of this one small creature takes on unexpected urgency and meaning. Also includes a bonus disc with illustrations.

Professional reviews

"Sandra Cisneros narrates her own short story of the search for a visiting friend's lost cat during a time in which Cisneros was grieving over the recent loss of her mother. As she searches for Marie the cat in her San Antonio neighborhood, Cisneros explores her feelings of feeling lost and orphaned in middle age. Her narration is tender and evocative as she meets neighbors who offer their support for her search efforts and who Cisneros realizes have experienced their own losses in life. Soft guitar music provides a gentle segue at the beginning and end of the story, which is followed by an afterword by the author. Listeners can choose from either the English- or Spanish-language version, both of which are included. S.E.G. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
