Josefina was born into wealth, but fell in love with scoundrel of a poor man. Her father was a sergeant in the police force. He loved his daughter dearly and hated her husband. And then, during a student uprising, he was injured and the young woman assumed he was dead. He wasn't dead though. He had taken the ferry to Miami, where he lived for the next 25 years. However, he wrote to her almost daily, never telling her where he was, but just detailing family history. He pays a local butcher to deliver the letters and a take care of the family, and naturally a romance ensues.
Josefina assumes that these were letters from heaven, hence the title of the book.
The family goes through its ups and downs. The husband is often gone for years at a time, the older son is son is growing up too quickly. And the daughter has a wealthy friend she meets in church who has a secret of her own.
I found the book interesting and read the 310 pages in a very short time. It is a good narrative and the writer is a fine storyteller. As a first novel, I think it is well crafted but I did yearn for more complexity and depth in both the story and the writing. I expect this author will grow though and I will definitely be interested in her next book.
