Critical Praise

" Astonishing. "


" Lisa Terán writes with extraordinary vividness and clarity...The 'lies of omission,' the churning waters between the stepping stones, are what make this book so compelling, and keep curiosity at a fever pitch. "


" Powerfully engrossing. "


" In South America, more than anywhere else it seems, truth is stranger than fiction...[This is] a remarkable story....All I can say is, read it. "

The Spectator

" A deeply felt, achingly beautiful memoir. "

Glasgow Herald

"A truly extraordinary tale. "
