Las Hermanas Padilla, by Tony Meneses is written and presented in English.
Las Hermanas Padilla is the story of 10 sisters in law, joined together through marriage. What happens to this familial bond when the men are gone? In this case, all 10 Padilla brothers are off fighting a war. The name of the war is not as important as the death of the men. The Padilla Sisters hear about these deaths in true Latin style as the artfulness of magical realism enters the story.
“A family can be made in all sorts of ways,” says the widowed Lucy waiting with her sisters-in-law. These women find comfort in each other, creating a bond beyond biology and find hope for the future.
