I absolutely adored this book. Unfortunately, because of that, I will not be reposting it as I plan to keep it and loan it out to my daughter and girlfriends.
Three generations of workers and coffee plantation owners - through the oftentimes discouraging politics, uprisings, poverty, family tragedies in El Salvador. Beautifully written.
Really a good book regarding coffee growing plantations in El Salvador. Very moving and lyrical.
This is really a paperback even though it comes up as hardcover.
Wow, I'm an avid reader of literature and this book is one of the best I've read in years, a real classic. Set on a fina, coffee plantation in San Salvador you follow 3 generations of a family and the wealthy family they work for.
I learned so much about the San Salvadorian history and culture. The characters are all wonderfully drawn, and interwoven into each other's lifes. Benitez is a wonderful story teller!
