From the Back Cover:

A Place Where the Sea Remembers is a mesmerizing tale of love and anger, hope and tragedy. At the heart of this rich and bewitching story is Chayo, the flower-seller, and her husband Candelario, the salad-maker, who finally may be blessed with the child they thought they would never have. Their cause for happiness, however, triggers a series of events that marks the lives of everyone in the small village of Santiago, Mexico. Woven into Chayo's and Candelario's story are an unforgettable array of characters: Marta, the hotel maid who reads cast-off American magazines and dreams of El Paso; don Justo, the heartbroken fortune-teller; Esperanza, the midwife who finds new love with Rafael, the shy schoolteacher. Their secret dreams and desires are known only to the omniscient sea and to the curandera Remedios, a healer who hears them all. The hopes, triumphs, failures, and shortcomings of this captivating array of individuals create a picture of life that is both a universal portrait and an insider's look at life in Latin America.
