Angel has just lost her father, and her mother's grief means she might as well be gone, too. She's got a sister and a grandmother to look out for, and a burgeoning consciousness of the unfairness in the world - in her family, her community, and her country.
Set against the backdrop of the second Philippine People Power Revolution in 2001, the contemporary struggles of surviving Filipina "Comfort Women" of WWII, and a cold winter’s season in the city of Chicago is the story of a daughter coming of age, coming to forgiveness, and learning to move past the chaos of grief to survive.

"Angel de la Luna is a beautifully told, and at times, heartbreaking coming-of-age and coming-to-America story. Evelina Galang is a masterful storyteller and through her brilliant voice and craft, Angel and her family become ours, too." (Edwidge Danticat)
this is one to listen to. the author/narrator reads this piece like one would read poetry--with a cadence and rhythm that ebbs and flows with the heartbeat of its characters. it is beautiful and tragic. it is real.
