Samantha (samanthan) | 30 comments This is a novel I haven't read. It came out in the 21st century, I don't think that long ago. It's a family saga spanning multiple generations about a family on a Caribbean island or somewhere in South America. I am pretty sure it's set on an island. It possibly contains some magical realism. It's literary fiction. The cover is land with bright green foliage and possibly the sea, with a black silhouette cutout of a woman over it. The author has a Hispanic name. The title may have "Island" in it. It may also have "Love" or "Spirits" in it. The characters may be people of color or Latino.

There's also this list that may be worth looking through

It's not The House of the Spirits. It came out more recently than that (definitely within the past 18 years) and it's not by an author as famous and established as Isabel Allende. Thank you for the suggestion; I appreciate it!

Thank you, Aerulan! I found the book on the list you shared with me. It's Land of Love and Drowning.
