Celeste León takes the reader on a deeply affecting voyage, balancing “the luckiest man in Maunabo’s” dreams and aspirations against the push and pull of a tightly-knit community. Emotionally pitch-perfect and skillfully written, this historical novel transports the reader on an unforgettable journey to a time and place most of us have never known.
