After the sudden and tragic death of her parents, Altagracia faces an uncertain future with a bitter and secretive grandmother. After the two sink into poverty, the young girl ends up with a woman who takes her to the United States, changes her name to Grace, and puts her to work as a full-time domestic servant. Tree of Sighs is the story of Grace's journey to uncover her past as she straddles two cultures in the search for her own identity. After escaping servitude and imprisonment, Grace endures life on the streets and a succession of jobs, and she eventually lands in a comfortable marriage. But a phone call from a person in her past sets her on a journey to the border, where she meets a man who holds the key to her past, learns the truth about her grandmother, and ultimately finds herself.

About the Author:
Lucrecia Guerrero grew up on the U.S.-Mexico border in Nogales, Arizona. She is the daughter of an Anglo American mother and Mexican father, and her writing often reflects her bilingual and bicultural upbringing. She holds an MFA in creative writing from Spalding University, and her work has appeared in such journals as The Antioch Review and The Louisville Review. Chasing Shadows, a collection of linked short stories, was published by Chronicle Books, and she received a Christopher Isherwood Foundation Award based on a portion of Tree of Sighs.
Review:
I have been following Lucrecia Guerrero's writing for several years with great pleasure and fascination. Tree of Sighs takes her art to a whole new level. Full, alive, and stately. This novel really delivers. --Luis A. Urrea, author of The Hummingbird's Daughter

Beautifully strange! Lucrecia Guerrero's Tree of Sighs is a wonderful odyssey that explores provocative and complex questions about personal, familial, and cultural indentity as well as the shifting legacy of secrets. No serious reader of contemporary fiction can afford to miss this novel filled with deep insight, humor, and a graceful lyricism, populated by characters worthy of Dickens, and propelled by a narrative as thrilling as it is profound. --K. L. Cook, author of Last Call and The Girl from Charnelle

Lucrecia Guerrero's gorgeous Tree of Sighs haunted me. The exploration of past secrets and the importance of identity consumed me along with Altagracia/Grace. I admired her brave journey and couldn't stop reading until I knew its outcome. And Guerroro's lyrical, poetic imagery took my breath away. This is an exquisite, important book. --Katrina Kittle, author of The Blessings of the Animals
