What People Say

“Moving from decade to decade and back and forth across the ocean from Manila to Berkeley, Calif., this is a compelling tale of tragic family secrets. “

Kirkus Reviews

“Soliven’s masterful prose lends the novel a fineness of detail that extends the pleasure of reading beyond mere plot and character into language.”

Butch Dalisay

“…an engrossing telenovela which captures the melodrama and emotionalism of Filipino life, while putting the spotlight on the country’s harsh socio-economic realities and debilitating cultural traits.”

Erwin de Leon, Huffington Post
