Esmeralda Santiago


            Esmeralda Santiago shared the story of her coming of age in San Juan and her move to another world—New York City—in her bestselling memoir, When I Was Puerto Rican. Now the beloved author invites us into the lush, sensual, aggressive, and altogether captivating world of Puerto Rico’s formative years. Conquistadora is an epic novel of love, discovery, and adventure, in a country just coming into its identity. Led by a heroine so charismatic, maddening, and unforgettable as to recall Scarlett O’Hara, Conquistadora has been hailed as “storytelling genius” (Booklist, starred review), and Oscar Hijuelos praised Conquistadora as “a grand achievement . . . an unforgettable story that will not only enlighten but delight.”
