The Book of Lost Saints

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 José Older.

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

Ramón 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 José Older is a haunting meditation on family, forgiveness and the violent struggle to be free.
