Outstanding. A novel set in El Salvador spanning several generations of both the aristocratic landowners as well as those who serve them. The class distinctions are very well portrayed, the reasons for the turbulence and civil war clearly explained through the lives of the characters in the book. A bit long at times, but well worth the read.
