"I believe in Spirits," Felicidad said.

"I believe in making love," said Aníbal.


In a small town in Puerto Rico, Felicidad Hidalgo spends her days serving busybodies in her aunt's bakery, and her nights dreaming of home. Closing her eyes she can almost hear the sweet songs of tree frogs, reminding her of the mountain village of her childhood, and the family she hasn't seen in nearly a decade. Her new life in town has delivered her from poverty, but not from loneliness-until the afternoon Aníbal walks through the door.

Aníbal Acevedo is not in need of a wife, but when he meets Felicidad while visiting family, he is stunned by the power of his attraction. Almost before he realizes what's happening, he has taken the girl into his bed and into his home-in Chicago. Yet soon the young lovers discover that married life is anything but idyllic. Can they find the courage to overcome the obstacles and temptations of their new world and rediscover the passion they once shared? Or will each find love and redemption in the arms of another?

"Everything you want in a novel-flawed, complicated characters, lush descriptions, breathtaking plot, and a fierce beating heart."

-Tayari Jones, award-winning author

"A deeply felt and satisfying tale that brings attention to the courage required to sustain hope, love, and passion as a stranger in a new land."

-Jonis Agee, award-winning author
