Tito and Clara where secret high school sweethearts in their Dominican neighborhood in Washington Heights. Clara grew up and moved on, but not Tito. This novel is about what happens when a series of family catastrophes and coincidences brings their lives back together. Great characters, great prose....
This book was hot and cold to me..there were moments that it flowed really well and the story kept my interest and times when it didn't. All in all it was a pretty good book and I liked it enough that I would try another one by the author, but this one just didn't rock my boat.
I read an excerpt of this novel in an Algonquin Books sampler, and I immediately sought out a copy of the book. I was swept up into the characters' lives, and I just had to know what had happened to them.
