When we launched our "Write the Bestseller" contest, we couldn't have imagined that we'd discover a talent like Dalia Rabinovich. Written in the best magic realism tradition, the novel chronicles the lives of David and Flora Grossenberg, a Jewish couple from Cincinnati who move to Colombia to join David's Russian emigre family. With Flora pregnant and David desperate to escape his odd and overbearing relations, the young couple moves away from the family. They discover a mysterious inhabitant: Bolivariana, a wizened old woman who claims to he the illegitimate daughter of Colombia's national hero, Simon Bolivar.
