Elaine Castillo's debut novel follows three generations of women from one immigrant family trying to reconcile the home they left behind with the life they're building in America.

Illuminating the violent political history of the Philippines in 1980s and '90s and the insular immigrant communities that spring up in the suburban US with an uncanny ear for the unspoken intimacies and pain that get buried by the duties of everyday life and family, Castillo delivers a powerful, increasingly relevant novel about the promise of the American dream.
