Now in paperback, the "beautiful" ("Chicago Sun-Times") novel from the prizewinning author of "Come Together, Fall Apart."
Miraflores never knew her father, and never thought he wanted to know her. But when she returns to the Chicago suburb where she grew up to care for her ailing mother, she discovers that her mother and father were greatly in love, and that her father had wanted a daughter more than she could have imagined. Now, Miraflores secretly plots a trip to Panama, in search of the man she hopes can heal her mother-and who can help her find the pieces of her own identity. What she finds is unexpected, exhilarating, and holds the power to change the course of her life.

Praise

"[Henriquez's ] characters and their predicaments are compelling, her descriptions luscious, her humor tart, and her sensitivity to the emotional implications of a long-camouflaged bicultural legacy is exquisite." - Donna Seaman 03/01/2009

"Latin America is simultaneously desperate and hypnotic, and Henríquez gets this aspect of it exactly right....THE WORLD IN HALF is engaging and touching." - Jonathan Yardley 04/26/2009
