A blues singer with a buried voice and flame-red hair, Willie Lee moves to a dusty New Mexico mining town to escape her past. There, her dreams and passions mingle with those of the townspeople, especially Chavela, a woman who makes her realize that sometimes love chooses us. Then, just as Willie Lee finds her singing voice again, an accident threatens the town with disaster. Written with a cinematic eye and a penetrating lyrical power, Arroyo introduces the most distinctive Southwestern voice since Barbara Kingsolver.

About the Author:

Summer Wood lives in the mountains of northern New Mexico, where she designs and builds small, beautiful houses. This is her first novel.

Review:

"Deep and compelling... [Wood's] characters are human, her writing elegant... The prose is spare, oblique, and powerful."
-San Jose Mercury News

"Exquisite... Wood's words will stick with you for quite some time, like a melody you can't get out of your head."
-Detroit Free Press

"In Wood's quiet story, appearances often aren't what they seem. She has the skill and sensitivity to reveal the riches not immediately apparent in a... village most travelers would simply pass by."
-Seattle Times

"[Wood] deftly handles her large cast of characters... with warmth and delicacy."
-Washington Post
