Stacie | 7 comments Poor and rich people living in mexico maybe there was gold and I remember a part where a woman was eating dirt or paint maybe both. seems like a latin or mexican author.

Do you mean maybe the book was set in Mexico or that maybe there was gold?

Thanks, but that's not the book. There could be mountains on cover....

Stacie | 7 comments It's not house of spirits. I remember there's a part where one of the characters (woman) eats wall paint or plaster and maybe dirt...

You can do this by typing a new comment at the end of the thread, or even by typing the word "bump."
