This is written as a gathering of journal entries, poems, grocery lists, newspaper articles, etc., as a middle aged woman looking back at her younger days - love, smuggling refugees, domestic violence, sexual abuse... The work reads more like a poem throughout, and some of the lines are so emotive that I found myself rereading them over and over again... One line said the rain sounded like pinon nuts being poured into a mason jar... Isn't that just amazing?

good book, years ago when I was a college student in the 1970's I met a girl from El Salvador, she told me some awful stories about what was happening in her Country, this book reminded me of that time and her stories, highly recommend this book

Demetria Martinez writes with great skill and a wide-open heart. It takes courage to write like this. I will never forget Mary / María and José Luia.
