"Imbued with magical realism, Barrio’s tale of lost loves sparkles. A gorgeously spun and deftly told tale."Kirkus Review

"Barrio’s story combines the timeless quality of a fable with the fully imagined emotional force of a modern novel. [Her characters]...bring to the novel the embroidered richness of a family saga told and retold across generations."Publisher's Weekly

"Carter’s translation of this whimsical novel offers a vivid and sultry language that perfectly reflects the Laguna family and their fantastical world. With self-healing wounds and pet cockroaches, this tale has it all. And while that can prove problematic, there’s no doubt that Barrio is a wonderfully gifted storyteller."Booklist
