Described as “una familia in stories,” these reflect the lives of four women yearning to get by and aspire for a better life. Lupita, Rosa, Ana, and Irma—each with their own struggles and ruminations.
This carried a poetic feel that’s often reflective and somber. With a languid pace, tales are a beacon to the prose of serious women’s fiction. It wasn’t as humorous as I would’ve liked it to be, although there were some Spanish catchphrases dispersed throughout that may give a chuckle. It was mostly about immigration and settling into a new culture.
Stories, for the most part, were well-written and endearing.
