Housekeeper to a Japanese family since she was 17, Agustina Dominguez lives a lonely life. Her only companions are her patron saint, the Virgin of Guadalupe, and the hungry koi she feeds in the fish pond. Mistakes of the past haunt her thoughts and dreams - a teenage pregnancy that ended her hopes for higher education, and a troubled, violent son who needed more help than she could give. Alone at midlife, Agustina searches for peace - and for the chance to live the life interrupted so many years ago. When opportunity knocks in the form of an affectionate, handsome detective, she opens the door to an unexpected destiny.
