Fresh, accomplished, and fearless, Vida marks the debut of Patricia Engel, a young author of immense talent and promise. Vida follows a single narrator, Sabina, as she navigates her shifting identity as a daughter of the Colombian diaspora and struggles to find her place within and beyond the net of her strong, protective, but embattled family.
A red-hot wake-up call? Reporter Macy Reynolds is the new "Yankee girl" in Tranquil Waters, Texas. Having recently inherited a large home and the local newspaper, she's also got a nasty case of cold shoulder from the town. Her only fan is the enormous dog she's just adopted - a dog who is about to land Macy into some deep (and incredibly hot) marine waters.... She was in red high heels and soaked to the skin, trying to shove the reluctant Great Dane into her car.
