Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

At the height of Guatemala's military tyranny during the 1980s, Guatemalan aristocrat Roger Graetz leaves his comfortable home in Boston for his homeland to investigate the death of Flor, the beautiful orphan with whom he was raised.

Synopsis:

The Long Night of White Chickens is a novel truly born of two worlds: It is the story of Roger Graetz, raised in a Boston suburb by an aristocratic Guatemalan mother, and his relationship with Flor de Mayo, the beautiful young Guatemalan orphan sent by his grandmother to live with his family as a maid. When, years later in the 1980s, Flor is murdered in Guatemala while running an orphanage, Roger returns to uncover the truth of her death. There he is reunited with Luis Moya, a childhood friend, and together they attempt to chronicle Flor's life story, a quest that will have unexpected, and unforgettable repercussions.
