The author of Mexican Gothic, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, gives us this lush and mysterious tale that is much more than a retelling of H. G. Wells' - and so needed! Moreno-Garcia sets the story in the Yucatan and its fraught racial-economic caste conflicts provide a real background to the intimate story she creates around Carlota, Dr. Moreau's daughter. The novel is relationship-driven, with empathy and kindness that brings incredible richness and nuance. I read Mexican Gothic and loved it, even though it's not a genre I typically read - but I loved this one even more!
