    This is SO beautiful! What a lovely way to introduce the book, with the wind and rain (I remember them so well, blowing across the decks of your house above the lake); your own epiphany; and Evelio, who takes over your garden–and the story! And to hear you voice on top of it: what a special event. The book cover is gorgeous.
    Mil gracias, Sandy!
