“Bentez’s third novel seamlessly blends fact with imagination, evoking the trauma of war more vividly than any newspaper account . . . beautifully illuminating.” (Publishers Weekly starred review)

Sandra Bentez received international acclaim for her first two novels: A Place Where the Sea Remembers (“A quietly stunning work that leaves soft tracks in the heart” —Washington Post Book World) and Bitter Grounds (“The kind of book that fills your dreams for weeks” –Isabel Allende). Now she returns with an unforgettable tale of life in war-torn El Salvador.
