The author writes in prose, poetry, and Mexican story telling to tell the story of her mother Chabela, who struggles through life yearns for amor and finally finds eternal love by joining her husband Caro en la otra mansión –the afterlife.

Chabela Luna yearned for ‘amor’ all her life. She was orphaned, and barely survived the scourge of hunger and a boarding house childhood in East Los Angeles as she moved from house to house, during the 1930s Great Depression.

She was fifteen when she fell for Caro at Hazard Park in north Boyle Heights. At nineteen, she eloped with him. Despite living in a cramped four-room house in the gang-ridden north Boyle Heights barrio of City Terrace, Chabela found amor with Caro and the five kids.

Caro worked backbreaking construction during the week in the Colorado Desert and came home on weekends. In spite of her jealous rages over his drunken friends–Chabela thanked Blessed Mother Mary for her life with Caro. 

Tragically, the Coachella blinding sun and sand blasting winds caused Caro’s early death.Eighty-five years later on her deathbed, Chabela prayed. “I love him. Caro. Caro. I love him.”
