In this translation of her dramatic work, The Day of the Moon, novelist Graciela Limon tells a story of forbidden loves. The novel spans the twentieth century, the Southwest from Mexico to Los Angeles, skin clors, the sexes, religious boundaries, life and death, and four generations of a family named Betancourt. Among its members: Don Flavio, who believes that chance may win one a fortune, but only ruthlessness can hold onto it… his secretive sister, Brigida … and his beautiful, golden-haired daughter Isadora, who refuses to submit to her father’s dictates, however terrible the cost to her–and everyone around her. Behind them all stands the silent figure of the runner Jeronimo Santigago, one of the native Tarahumara who work on Don Flavio’s hacienda. Though they may wish to deny it, the Betancourts are pursued by Jeronimo–even in death–to the deepest, most hidden recesses of family memory.
