"A very good novel indeed, with echoes of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Katherine Anne Porter, and even Graham Greene."--The New York Times

Richard and Sara Everton, just over and just under forty, have come to the small Mexican village of Ibarra to reopen a copper mine abandoned by Richard's grandfather fifty years before. They have mortgaged, sold, borrowed, left friends and country, to settle in this remote spot; their plan is to live out their lives here, connected to the place and to each other.
The two Americans, the only foreigners in Ibarra, live among people who both respect and misunderstand them. And gradually the villagers--at first enigmas to the Evertons--come to teach them much about life and the relentless tide of fate.
"A novel of genuine power and intelligence, written in an arresting style, amply imbued with atmosphere and meaning."--The Washington Post

"Doerr is a marvelous writer. Her observations are clear sighted, her writing spare but graceful, and she creates telling images. . . . A wonderful book."--Publishers Weekly

"Something of a miracle as novels go, a real act of creation."--Los Angeles Times
