Robert Navarre's novel, Amerikano, explores the "power of love", and how it entangles the lives of four people. At the center of this emotional storm is Paul Moret, a lonely widower haunted by the premature death of his wife. Believing that he can recapture the life he has lost if only he can find the right woman, Paul Moret pursues his dream across the ocean to the Philippines where he travels the length and breadth of the country in search of his elusive ideal. In Mindanao, Paul arrives just as the war between the Christians and the Muslims is heating up; in Manila he falls in with a crowd of addicts; and in Samar he witnesses a mock crucifixion and has an encounter with the local witchdoctor.
