Les Dejo el Mar -- Great Read Mar 21, 2010
This is a great generational story of a family in Veracruz, Mexico in the 1920s. Each chapter is a vignette of a moment in one character's life. The saga begins with the tough-as-nails Spanish matriarch who moves to the far-away and fabled Yucatan after she is widowed. Each character is painted deftly with a sure brush stroke, as the maiden great-aunts, Chola and Judith, who are funny, practical and terse in their explanation as to why little María didn't get any Christmas presents. The most sympathetic character is Licho, the sensitive, observant boy believes his teacher when he tells him that he has the hands of a surgeon and then goes on to go to medical school. I'm not even finished with this book, but I love it!
With all the current craze for genealogy and DNA analysis, as with Lisa Kudrow's "Who Do You Think You Are?" and Henry Louis Gates' "Faces of America", this book is timely.
