Partly based on the author’s earlier life and encounters, this magical realism novella follows three women growing up in poverty in the Peruvian Amazon of the 1990s, then caught up in cocaine trade and communist terrorism. Their partners are a soldier and drug producer, an illegal logger, and a terrorist leader… They experience life on the fringes of crime, displacement, and the grit of survival in urban slums. Their destinies are intertwined from childhood to adulthood and the dream of a better life, sometimes at any cost, runs through their stories like a silver thread.
