Book Introduction:

"Angel de la Luna is a beautifully told, and at times, heartbreaking coming of age and coming to America story. Evelina Galang is a masterful storyteller and through her brilliant voice and craft, Angel and her family become ours too."—Edwidge Danticat

Angel has just lost her father, and her mother's grief means she might as well be gone too. She's got a sister and a grandmother to look out for, and a burgeoning consciousness of the unfairness in the world—in her family, her community, and her country.

Set against the backdrop of the second Philippine People Power Revolution in 2001, the contemporary struggles of surviving Filipina “Comfort Women” of WWII, and a cold winter’s season in the city of Chicago is the story of a daughter coming of age, coming to forgiveness, and learning to move past the chaos of grief to survive.

M. Evelina Galang is the author of Her Wild American Self and the novel One Tribe. She has edited the anthology Screaming Monkeys: Critiques of Asian American Images. She is currently writing Lolas' House: Women Living with War, stories of surviving Filipina WWII "Comfort Women," and is at work on a new novel. Galang teaches in and directs the creative writing program at the University of Miami, is core faculty for VONA/Voices: Voices of Our Nation Arts Foundation, and has been named one of the one hundred most influential Filipinas in the United States by Filipina Women's Network.
