Canto del Agua by Nelly Rosario

Book Description

Esta novela vibrante y provocativa explora los suenos y las luchas de tres generaciones de mujeres dominicanas. Graciela, nacida en las cercanias de Santo Domingo al final del siglo diecinueve, es una aventurera testaruda que se cria durante la ocupacion de los Estados Unidos. Demasiada pobre para viajar mas alla de su imaginacion y frustrada con la monotonia de su vida, se ve afectada en sus relaciones amorosas y en su relacion con su hija Mercedes. Mercedes, abandonada a los trece anos por Graciela, acude a la religion como consuelo, y despues de manejar una tienda durante la dictadura de Trujillo, emigra a Nueva York con su esposo y con su nieta, Leila. Leila hereda la inquietud apasionada de su bisabuela Graciela. Pero, atrapada entre culturas, su libertad llega con sus propias obligaciones y peligros."
