From the moment nine-year-old Angela Martin sees her father led away on a summer day by immigration officers, she spends her life denying her Mexican roots. As the novel opens, Angela Martin Raine, a woman with a newly-born fear and a newly-awakened regret prodding her, leaves a comfortable Los Angeles home and a distressed husband to return to a fishing village in Mexico, there to face the reality of her denial.
