NY Times: "Cofer reveals herself to be a prose writer of evocatively lyrical authority, a novelist of historial compass and sensitivity ... One recognizes in the rich weave and vigorous elegance of the language of THE LINE OF THE SUN a writer of authentic gifts, with a genuine and important story to tell." Set in the 1950's and 60's, this novel moves from a rural Puerto Rican village to a tough immigrant housing project in New Jersey, telling the story of a Hispanic family's stuggle to become part of a new culture without relinquishing the old.
