The Book of Lost Saints
by Daniel José Older




Overview -

The Book of Lost Saints is an evocative multigenerational Cuban-American family story of revolution, loss, and family bonds from New York Times-bestselling author Daniel Jos Older.

Marisol vanished during the Cuban Revolution, disappearing with hardly a trace. Now, shaped by atrocities long-forgotten, her tenacious spirit visits her nephew, Ram n, in modern-day New Jersey. Her hope: that her presence will prompt him to unearth their painful family history.

Ram n launches a haphazard investigation into the story of his ancestor, unaware of the forces driving him on his search. Along the way, he falls in love, faces a run-in with a murderous gangster, and uncovers the lives of the lost saints who helped Marisol during her imprisonment.

The Book of Lost Saints by Daniel Jos Older is a haunting meditation on family, forgiveness, and the violent struggle to be free.
