The Chin Kiss King
The lives of three generations of Cuban-American women sharing a home in Miami are chronicled in this engaging first novel. Cuca, the matriarch, is a zealous believer in the spirits she consults on a daily basis. Adela is her cosmetologist daughter--and a sensuous lover of life and the lottery. Adela's daughter Maribel, a young woman making her way in corporate America, has been exiled from the world of spirits and dreams. When Maribel's son Victor is born, the three women must confront the inextricable ties that make them a family as they bond together to care for this fragile infant--and each other.
Lyrical, vibrant, and deeply touching, The Chin Kiss King is testimony to the resilient spirit of women and a haunting meditation on the meaning of faith and the power of love to redeem and transform.

Review: The Chin Kiss KingUser Review - Suanne Laqueur - Goodreads
Beautiful beautiful beautiful. I read this nearly 16 years ago and still remember it. A book about life, love, pain, mothers, women and letting go. Tissues necessary. And a highlighter for the chapter on Cuca's 8 life lessons. I loved her scenes the most.. Highly recommend. Read full review
