CONSIDER THIS, SEÑORA by Harriet Doerr
Released: Aug. 1, 1993

"A beautifully rendered novel in which the happy endings are more eloquent epiphanies than facile plot wrap-ups—and a second novel well worth the wait."
From the author of the American Book Award-winning Stones for Ibarra (1984): a novel that limns in lapidary prose a story of loss and renewal in a small Mexican village—a town transformed by Americans inadvertently ``into something more beautiful than it is.'' As in an old morality fable—without the moralizing—Doerr tells of four expatriates driven to seek refuge in a place so unfamiliar that its ``otherness'' will be the catalyst that restores them.
