Under the Mesquite

By Die Bucherphilosophina

I’m quite fond of this novel, the way its sentences are beautifully crafted around a tragic topic. How it follows the story of its main character without much ado. Under the Mesquite will charm you just as it has charmed me. The warmth of the narration in addition to the glimpse at the life of the narrator and her family business makes for a well-loved read. . . . A gem of a book, that’s all that needs saying.
