In order to succed Ana must give up all that she holds dear. She must re-make herself into a rootless and obsessed individual. But even after accomplishing this, fate still conspires to wound her. Ana Calderón has will, guts and intelligence, but her battle against family, church, and the justice system shakes our belief in the ability to forge our own destinies.
The Memories of Ana Calderón is a second novel by the writer of who The New York Times Book Review hailed as one who "leaves the reader with that special hunger that can be created only by a newly discovered writer. Ms. Limón's prose is self-assured and engrossing."
