What a beautiful story this is. I have about 60 pages left, so I'm writing this, hoping the last pages won't totally blow it. I jest you, people. I love the flow of this novel. It's a piece of historical fiction set in the 1800s in Puerto Rico. If you have ever read Bless Me, Ultima or Like Water For Chocolate, then you will like this book. It is the story of Ana who travels to Puerto Rico to fulfill her dream of making it in the New World. There are so many topics for discussion...slavery, women's rights, adultery, child rearing. If you belong to a book club, you might suggest this book for it. There are so many subjects to discuss. I will be reading the book, "When I was Puerto Rican," also by the same author. I like her writing style. I'll let you know how I like that one as well.
It is time for homework, and clean up. So I will be going. I'm wishing you a good evening.
