From the Back Cover
"Like a Caribbean Scheherazade, Nelly Rosario casts a spell on her readers with this stirring saga of three generations of Dominican women whose yearning becomes our own. What they want and what we get reading Song of the Water Saints is a sense of a luminous world, complex and layered, full of passion and adventure. This novel is a song, restless and moving. An accomplished and promising first novel."--Julia Alvarez, author of In the Name of Salome and In the Time of the Butterflies
"An electrifying debut by a writer whose words I have long awaited. Powerfully written, meticulously imagined and arresting to its core, Nellie Rosario's novel is a flame for the mind and the heart, the sort of gift you are endlessly grateful for."--Junot Diaz, author of Drown
"What a refreshingly wonderful debut. . . Nelly Rosario has woven a rich tapestry of Dominican history with the vivid details of unforgettable lives. Poetic, transporting, heartbreaking. Bravo."--Cristina Garcia, author of The Aguero Sisters and Dreaming in Cuban
"Epic and poetic, Nelly Rosario's Song of the Water Saints is a gorgeous first novel."--Edwidge Danticat, author of Krik, Krak and Breath, Eyes, Memory
"Like old photographs or a love story playing on a distant radio, Rosario's prose resonates with an elegant sadness. A three part melody, each sung in a different era by women whose lives are ever changing. From the Dominican Republic to the USA, they sing the history of our people, where we came from, what we've become and where we're headed."--Ernesto Quinonez, author of Bodega Dreams
"The circle of myth, history, longing and grief in Song of the Water Saints will envelope the reader as it does the lives of Nelly Rosario's beautifully realized characters. This brilliant first novel reaches back to the colonial past of the Dominican Republic with a depth of knowledge and feeling, with a resepct for hard lessons of the past that must inform a quest for personal freedom. The family story is carried forward to the continuing struggle for identity in the barrios of New York. Nelly Rosario displays a gift only given to a true writer in her command of the many voices which make up the song of her novel."--Maureen Howard, author of A Lover's Almanac
"Song of the Water Saints does not mess around, it's fun, intelligent and unnerving. It's the story of four women and the story of an island, histories deftly observed. Nelly Rosario's wonderful first novel manages what few literary works do: to meld entertainment and elucidation. I couldn't put the damn thing down, it kept moving me."--Victor LaValle, author of Slapboxing with Jesus
