The "beautiful" (Chicago Sun-Times) novel from the prizewinning author of Come Together, Fall Apart.

Miraflores never knew her father, and never thought he wanted to know her. But when she returns to the Chicago suburb where she grew up to care for her ailing mother, she discovers that her mother and father were greatly in love, and that her father had wanted a daughter more than she could have imagined. Now, Miraflores secretly plots a trip to Panama, in search of the man she hopes can heal her mother—and who can help her find the pieces of her own identity. What she finds is unexpected, exhilarating, and holds the power to change the course of her life.

Cristina Henriquez is the author of the story collection Come Together, Fall Apart, which was a New York Times Editor's Choice selection, and the novel The World in Half. Her work has appeared in the New Yorker, the Atlantic, Glimmer Train, Virginia Quarterly Review, Ploughshares, TriQuarterly, AGNI, and The Oxford American, as well as in various anthologies.

Joana Garcia is a retired military officer with twenty years of active duty under her belt. She spent most of her adult life fixing fighter jets on aircraft carriers as a US Navy aviation maintenance officer. Her love of the sea is only seconded by her love of telling stories. Her warm, rich, and graceful voice can be heard in over sixty titles in multiple genres, fiction and nonfiction. Joana began narrating audiobooks after retiring from the military, becoming a stay at home mom and listening to audiobooks. After countless coaching sessions, audio engineering tutorials, and setting up a professional studio, she is fulfilling her lifelong dream of being a professional actor. Joana volunteers to mentor veterans through Veterati.com and is an active member of the Audio Publishers Association.
