Place Where the Sea Remembers
Finalist for the Los Angeles Times book award and winner of the Minnesota Book Award, A Place Where the Sea Remembers is a timeless classic, a mesmerizing world filled with love, betrayal, tragedy, and hope.
This rich and bewitching story is a bittersweet portrait of the people in Santiago, a Mexican village by the sea. Chayo, the flower seller, and her husband Candelario, the salad maker, are finally blessed with the child they thought they would never have. Their cause for happiness, however, triggers a chain of events that impact the lives of everyone in their world.
The hopes, triumphs, failures, and shortcomings of the novel’s enchanting array of characters create a graceful picture of life that is both a universal portrait and an insider’s look at life in Latin America.

i would NOT suggest this book to anyone unless they loved to read something that brought you to tears because of boredom. this book is the vain of my existence. its positively awful! in a few sentences i can tell you what this book entails. guy loses his job, they are poor, wife cant get pregnant so he takes some other woman's baby but then says never mind i don't want it my wife is pregnant, oh and talks about abortion. taada! that's the book. oh also if you don't know much Spanish good luck understanding any of it. even though the book is a mere 163 pages i was counting down till it was done.
Review: Place Where the Sea RemembersUser Review - Angelica - Goodreads
Beautifully written. Loved the symbolism. Each Chapter draws you into a life you couldn't imagine. To have years go by each chapter and yet you feel as if you know what has happened to each of these lives in between what is written. I felt their tragedy and their love. Read full review
