Lovesick by Angeles Mastretta

Lovesick

Angeles Mastretta

A love triangle, politics, revolution, and a woman's desire for more than passion. Thirty years of Mexican history is the backdrop for an epic and beautiful story.

Extract

The world was a different one from that of 30 years before. Many things had changed so quickly that there was scarcely time to register it. There was poverty and stagnation everywhere and interwoven with that, wealth and change. And on top of it the old insisted on governing a country that was by now a land of the young for whom the only world, the only passion was the future.
