Description
A moving and dramatic novel of a suburban wife and mother whose past comes back to haunt her . . . Clara Lugo has escaped her difficult and tumultuous childhood in a Dominican neighborhood in the northern reaches of Manhattan. Now she tries to live a settled professional life with her American husband and son in the suburbs of New Jersey--often thwarted by Clara's constellation of relatives who don't understand her gringa ways. Her mostly happy life is disrupted, however, when Tito, a former boyfriend from fifteen years earlier, reappears. He still carries a torch for Clara, and she harbors a secret from their past. Their reunion sets in motion an unraveling of both of their lives--and reveals what assimilation, or the absence of it, has cost them both . . . "Michaud's quiet account of a foundering marriage and his forays into the mind of an abused child and her adult self are perfectly done." -- Booklist
