Summary (From the publisher):

Focusing on the relationship between two fiercely independent women--Teresa, a writer, and Alicia, an artist--this epistolary novel was written as a tribute to Julio Cortázar's Hopscotch and examines Latina forms of love, gender conflict, and female friendship. The history of their colorful friendship is revealed through Theresa's introspective and lyrical letters to Alicia, dating from their travels to Mexico during their youth, through their distinct but connected lives in the United States, and into middle age. Each stage of their developing relationship helps them gain strength from each other while confronting the demands and social expectations dictated by the men in their lives. In the end, it is only the strength of this enduring friendship that gives them courage to combat these expectations, and the tragedies that often result from them.
