Winner of the National Book Award for First Work of Fiction "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.
