Book Overview

Acclaimed author Margarita Engle tells a painful, poignant story of love in a time of hunger inspired by her own family's struggles during a dark period in Cuba's history.

The people of Cuba are living in el per odo especial en tiempos de paz--the special period in times of peace. That's what the government insists that this era must be called, but the reality behind these words is starvation.

Liana is struggling to find enough to eat. Yet hunger has also made her brave: she finds the courage to skip a summer of so-called volunteer farm labor, even though she risks government retribution. Nearby, a quiet, handsome boy named Amado also refuses to comply, so he wanders alone, trying to discover rare sources of food.

A chance encounter with an enigmatic dog brings Liana and Amado together. United in hope and hunger, they soon discover that their feelings for each other run deep. Love can feed their souls and hearts--but is it enough to withstand el per odo especial?
