  • This collection of loosely linked stories introduces us to the sprawling Navarro family, whose origins can be traced to a hacienda in the Philippines Roley covers a lot of emotional ground here as his characters move through lives shadowed by war, family obligation, memories, and the inevitable disappointments of love The pervasive feeling of melancholy that runs from the first story to the last may not appeal to every reader, but I found it quite moving A rich, satisfying collection.
