IN THE PRESS

A most anticipated Small Press Books of 2017: "Set in Guatemala in the 1960s, Howard's novel about politics, idealism, regret and lost love is not only profoundly moving but also timeless in its resonance."

“Vivid and complex, this novel is a portrait of a very specific moment in history that feels just as vital today.”

“This novel, so beautifully written and deeply felt, reads like a haunting from a forgotten past. It captures, especially through the vividly rendered characters of its young American idealists and the choices they make, a precise moment when Guatemala—and much of Latin America—seemed balanced between two destinies. It makes you ache to go back in time and change the outcome.”

KIRKUS REVIEW

FRANCIS GOLDMAN

author of Say Her Name

“If Ernest Hemingway had written a novel about the Guatemalan civil war, it might well have looked like In the Land of Eternal Spring.”

PEACE CORPS WORLDWIDE

JOHN NICHOLS

“A remarkable love story and vivid portrait of the great dilemma of our times, our national priorities and beleaguered world…. I can’t remember when a tale so carefully and cleanly crafted, so understated and straightforward, has moved me so deeply at the end.”

BOOKLIST

…..the suffering, abuse, and oppression of the Guatemalan people give the story its emotional heft.”
