Angel de la Luna and the 5th Glorious Mystery

Angel has just lost her father, and her mother's grief means she might as well be gone too. She's got a sister and a grandmother to look out for, and a burgeoning consciousness of the unfairness in the world --- in her family, her community and her country.
Set against the backdrop of the second Philippine People Power Revolution in 2001, the contemporary struggles of surviving Filipina “Comfort Women” of WWII and a cold winter’s season in the city of Chicago is the story of a daughter coming of age, coming to forgiveness and learning to move past the chaos of grief to survive.
