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!
