Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In 2007, while attempting to bodysurf off the coast of Mexico, Francisco Goldmans wife, Aura, was killed by a rogue wave. Theyd been married for just under two years, but anyone who ever met them couldnt deny how they seemed made for each other, even despite their 20-year age difference. Devastated and lost, the only thing that shocks Frank out of his heartbroken haze is the allegation Auras mother brings against him: Frank is the one responsible for Auras death and will be held legally accountable. Rudderless and half-mad with grief, he begins to contemplate his mother-in-laws words, determined to trace Auras tragic destiny back to its source. Say Her Name is Franks fictional account of his relationship with Aura, of her past, and of his struggle to be reborn in a world without her.

Synopsis:

In 2005, celebrated novelist Francisco Goldman married a beautiful young writer named Aura Estrada in a romantic Mexican hacienda. The month before their second anniversary, during a long-awaited holiday, Aura broke her neck while body surfing. Francisco, blamed for Auras death by her family and blaming himself, wanted to die, too. Instead, he wrote Say Her Name, a novel chronicling his great love and unspeakable loss, tracking the stages of grief when pure love gives way to bottomless pain.

Suddenly a widower, Goldman collects everything he can about his wife, hungry to keep Aura alive with every memory. From her childhood and university days in Mexico City with her fiercely devoted mother to her studies at Columbia University, through their newlywed years in New York City and travels to Mexico and Europe—and always through the prism of her gifted writings—Goldman seeks her essence and grieves her loss. Humor leavens the pain as he lives through the madness of grief and creates a living portrait of a love as joyous as it is deep and profound.

Say Her Name is a love story, a bold inquiry into destiny and accountability, and a tribute to Aura, who she was and who she would've been.
