The second novel by Tina Casanova, Puerto Rican author. From a little town to a housing project, to an urbanization to a luxury condominium, Jacinta Mejias and her family seem to be eternally moving - upward. Set in the 40s, 50s and 60s, decades of both heaven and hell, this story is almost an allegory of the change in Puerto Rico from an agricultural society to an industrialized one. Great characterizations, just as in her first novel, Sambiron.
