In our family everything was connected and each story was part of the same tapestry. The problem lay in recognizing which skein should start the embroidery and the exact point to cut the string. Lazos de sangre opens a window into the world that lies hidden behind silks and chiffons, social clubs and come-out parties; its pages give us access to a sector of Puerto Ricos upper echelons during the twentieth century. Rosario Ferre skillfully navigates through encounters and missed encounters, between belief and instinct.
From the Publisher:
"Con la lectura de 'Lazos de sangre,' conoceremos la realidad que se esconde bajo los trajes de seda y chiffon, las visitas a los clubes sociales y las fiestas de presentaciâon en sociedad. Veremos lo que hay mâas allâa de las dichas y celebraciones de un sector de la clase alta puertorriqueäna del siglo XX." --From publisher's description.
