“A haunting, almost uncanny tale of love and honor in which the . . . characters move through a world of secret passions and silences. . . . [Set in Puerto Rico], scenes of impoverished farmers, madwomen, and men in coffee shops and cafes combine to form a blend of voices and landscapes whose essence can be distilled into three words: tobacco, coffee, and sugar”
Marjorie Agosin, New York Times Book Review
