We are reading Broken Islands by Criselda Yabes on our next sessions of The Book Club with Sam Oh (June 26 and July 3).
Set in the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda, the novel follows Luna and Alba, two women whose lives become entangled through their relationships with the Cimafranca paterfamilias. Touching on issues of class and gender inequality, this beautifully written novel provides insight into the familial structure and power dynamics of generations living with the effects of a tragedy.
