Description
Esta novela vibrante y provocativa explora los sueños y las luchas de tres generaciones de mujeres dominicanas. Graciela, nacida en las cercanías de Santo Domingo al final del siglo diecinueve, es una aventurera testaruda que se cria durante la ocupación de los Estados Unidos. Demasiada pobre para viajar mas allá de su imaginación y frustrada con la monotonía de su vida, se ve afectada en sus relaciones amorosas y en su relación con su hija Mercedes. Mercedes, abandonada a los trece años por Graciela, acude a la religión como consuelo, y después de manejar una tienda durante la dictadura de Trujillo, emigra a Nueva York con su esposo y con su nieta, Leila. Leila hereda la inquietud apasionada de su bisabuela Graciela. Pero, atrapada entre culturas, su libertad llega con sus propias obligaciones y peligros. From the Trade Paperback edition.
