From the bestselling author of The Piano Tuner, a stunning novel about a young girl’s journey through a vast, unnamed country in search of her brother.

Fourteen-year-old Isabel was born in a remote village with the gift and curse of “seeing farther.” When drought and war grip the backlands, her brother Isaias joins a great exodus to a teeming city in the south. Soon Isabel must follow, forsaking the only home she’s ever known, her sole consolation the thought of being with her brother again.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ron | 2/17/2014

    " This is the story of a young South American girl, born into abject poverty, who sets out alone to find her missing brother in the slums of a large city (Rio?). Excellent depiction of the culture and people of urban Latin America. Good "coming of age" story also. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Glen | 2/14/2014

    " A sad, strange little book about terribly poor people in Central America. Depressing even with a tortured happy ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Roberto | 2/8/2014

    " A sad and claustrophobic tale about love and hope but be warned it is a little depressing "
