Today’s Tuesday Teaser comes from Tanya Maria Barrientos’ Frontera Street:
“I was seven months into my pregnancy, and my legs and ankles were perpetually swollen. The baby kicked whenever I stretched my arms over my head to reach the uppermost button drawers.”
This is said by Dee, a Gringa, who arrived at the fabric shop on Frontera Street in the Barrio one day and promptly fainted. Strangely enough, she stayed, and her story unfolds along with that of Alma, who already works there. This is a story of “friendship and forgiveness,” a story of women being there for each other, one which I am sure I am going to enjoy.
