The San Francisco Writer’s Conference just posted this in their newsletter:
- “When her Colombian husband deserts her on his family’s coffee farm high in the Andes, Alicia struggles to make a life there for herself and her son even as guerrilla uprisings begin to threaten the area, and a nearby volcano rumbles to life. This passionate story, about a young biologist and a multicultural cast of characters, is like a South American ‘Out of Africa’ in the final decades of the 1900’s.”
