(From the publisher):
Set in the 1950s and 60s, The Line of the Sun moves from a rural Puerto Rican village to a tough immigrant housing project in New Jersey to tell the story of a family's struggle to become part of a new culture without relinquishing the old. At the story's center is Guzmán, an almost mythic figure whose adventures and exile, salvation and return leave him a broken man but preserve his place in the heart and imagination of his niece, who is his secret biographer.
