From the beloved author of How the García Girls Lost Their Accents and In the Time of Butterflies, an epic and intimate novel about two generations of women and the personal impact of history.

It the summer of 1960, Camila Henríquez Urena is about to travel from Poughkeepsie to Cuba to join Fidel Castro’s revolution. As the daughter of Solomé Urena–the 19th-century revolutionary Dominicana poet–activism is part of Camila’s inheritance. Yet she also knows the confusion of exile and a painful curiosity about the mother she never knew. Now, as she takes up her mother’s legacy, she delves behind the public facts of her mother’s life and pieces together the story of the private Solomé–and thus her own story.

“An ambitious historical novel about a remarkable Caribbean family.”–The New York Times

“Masterful, rich and rewarding historical fiction…. Poignant, colorful, exhilarating.”–The Denver Post

“Dazzling…. For everyone who has ever loved and grieved over a parent, a child, a country.”–The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
