Cuando las hermanas Garcia --Carla, Sandra, Yolanda y Sofia-- y sus padres huyen de la Republica Dominicana buscando refugio de la persecucion politica, encuentran un nuevo hogar en los Estados Unidos. Pero el Nueva York de los anos sesenta es marcadamente diferente de la vida privilegiada, aunque conflictiva, que han dejado atras. Bajo la presion de asimilarse a una nueva cultura, las muchachas Garcia se alisan el pelo, abandonan la lengua espanola y se encuentran con muchachos sin una chaperona. Pero por mas que intentan distanciarse de su isla natal, las hermanas no logran desprender el mundo antiguo del nuevo. Lo que las hermanas han perdido para siempre --y lo que logran encontrar-- se revela en esta novela magistral de una de las novelistas mas celebradas de nuestros tiempos.
