"When Maria Vazquez returns to Nicaragua for her beloved grandfather's funeral, she brings with her a mysterious package from her grandmother's past--and a secret of her own. And she also carries the burden of her tense relationship with her mother Ninexin, once a storied revolutionary, now a tireless government employee. Between Maria and Ninexin lies a chasm created by the death of Maria's father, who was killed during the revolution when Maria was an infant, leaving her to be raised by her grandmother Isabela as Ninexin worked to build the new Nicaragua"-- Provided by publisher.

The novel is mostly about the relationships between the grandmother, mother & daughter of a well-off Nica family: the dramatic differences between the three generations are acutely analyzed and reflected in the events of the story. The Sandinista Revolution adds to the dynamic and depth of the plot but is not the main subject.
