We meet Emilianna, a Panamanian grandmother who learns how far she will go to protect her family, and an Army doctor during the Balkan wars who discovers that one of the greatest wounds of war is an aching heart. We are treated to mystery, science fiction, traditional literature and a childas tale, all in one collection. The author says she has never met anyone who is not fascinating, and that if we read carefully we will meet them too, maybe even meet ourselves, in her stories.
