June Book: The Disappearance of Irene Dos Santos

If you want to read a lush tale full of beautifully lyrical prose, you should definitely check out The Disappearance of Irene Dos Santos By Margaret Mascarenhas out in stores this month. The backdrop for this tale of best friends torn apart, revolution and family is Venezuela.

You would never guess that the author, Margaret Mascarenhas, is Indian. A Latina at heart? After all, she did grow up in Venezuela.


  1. I plan to review this book sometime soon. Sounds like an intriguing read.

    I'm enjoying your posts!
