Product Overview

MILLY KAUFMAN IS an ordinary American teenager living in Vermont--until she meets Pablo, a new student at her high school. His exotic accent, strange fashion sense, and intense interest in Milly force her to confront her identity as an adopted child from Pablo''s native country. As their relationship grows, Milly decides to undertake a courageous journey to her homeland and along the way discovers the story of her birth is intertwined with the story of a country recovering from a brutal history.
Beautifully written by reknowned author Julia Alvarez, "Finding Miracles" examines the emotional complexity of familial relationships and the miracles of everyday life.

"From the Hardcover edition."

Author Info
Julia Alvarez
Like many of her characters, Alvarez emigrated from the Dominican Republic (where her father worked in the underground against Trujillo) to Queens, New York when she was 10 years old. Educated at boarding schools, Middlebury College (B.A. 1971), and Syracuse University (M.F.A.), she has been a traveling poet-in-residence for the state of Kentucky, a teacher, and a poet. Most of her work is about the Latina experience in America, and her novels tend to be written from multiple points-of-view.
Praise
"An unusual story skillfully given the ease of more common dramas, this will draw readers ordinarily skittish about politics...."
