However, the city is not the land of plenty they had believed it to be, leaving her no choice but to make a home for herself in the sprawling slums. And although there has been no word from Isaias for several years, she remains convinced that they will one day be reunited.
A vivid, uncompromising portrayal of poverty and desperation, A Far Country is also a sensitive and haunting tale of struggle, loss, and the ties of family, from the critically acclaimed author of The Piano Tuner.

"Mason invests his story with all the power of a fable, one that gives Isabel's personal bravery its due while also relaying the timelessness of human suffering." (Booklist)
