Publisher's Summary

After serving seventy years in prison for the murder of her sister, Eula, Della Lee has finally returned home to the Texas town of Puerto Pesar. She's free from confinement - and ready to tell her secrets before it's too late.
She finds a willing audience in journalist Mick Anders, who is reeling after his suspension from a Boston newspaper and in town, reluctantly, to investigate a mysterious portrait of Eula that reportedly sheds tears. He crosses paths with Dr. Paloma Vega, who's visiting Puerto Pesar with her own mission: to take care of her ailing grandmother and to rescue her rebellious younger sister before something terrible happens. Paloma and Mick have their reasons to be in the hot, parched border town whose name translates as "Port of Regret." But they don't anticipate how their lives will be changed forever.
Moving and engrossing, this dual story alternates between Della's dark ordeals of the 1940s and Paloma and Mick's present-day search for answers about roots, family, love, and what is truly important in life.

Decent story. Iffy on religion.

I could have done without the marginalization of Catholics. No Catholic I know goes to church, we go to Mass. We don't genuflect out of habit or worship the preist or choir members. Even in rural south Texas, we know better than to be so easily drawn in by show. And yes, I would know. What was marginal was the near instalove by two pseudo sophisticates. They come along to do everyone a great big favor. Now that I think about it, I guess I didn't like it all that much. Too many unnecessary little digs at tradition, heritage, culture and history. Comes off as pevish interruptions in what could have been a great story. Should have been.
