Description - Let it Rain Coffee: From the Women's Prize shortlisted author of Dominicana by Angie Cruz
Esperanza risked her life fleeing the Dominican Republic for the glittering dream she saw on television but years later she is still stuck in a cramped tenement with her husband, Santo, and their two children, Bobby and Dallas. She works as a home help and, at night, hides unopened bills from the credit card company where Santo won't find them when he returns from driving his minicab. When Santo's mother dies and his father, Don Chan, comes to Nueva York to live out his twilight years with the Colons, nothing will ever be the same. Don Chan remembers fighting together with Santo in the revolution against Trujillo's cruel regime, the promise of who his son might have been, had he not fallen under Esperanza's spell. Let it Rain Coffee is a sweeping novel about love, loss, family, and the elusive nature of memory and desire.
