The narrators remind me of Ferrante. Colombia from two perspectives during the late 80s and early 90s. Beautiful novel.
Set in Bogotá, Colombia and told through alternating chapters from the perspective of young Chula and Patrona, the teenage maid. Chula lives in a gated community and grows up seeing violence outside those gates. Patrona lives in the guerilla controlled slums of the Hills and has lost family to the violence and struggles to keep her family afloat. Parts of this story are difficult to read, but it was important to the story of that time and place.
