“This meditation on the past melds melancholy and jubilation.”
“Readers who enjoy stories with a strong sense of place, family sagas, or travel memoirs may find enjoyment in this title, and although it reads like
a memoir, it is a work of fiction.”

-Books With Michellee
Ramiro leaves the British drizzle and his beloved fiancÃ© Yoss to investigate his family history back home in Costa Rica. What starts as an innocent fascination with an old family photo album leads to conversations with the older generations and revelations he is not prepared for: recounting tales of everything from affairs to adventurous escapades, all while taking time to share a laugh over life’s messier moments.
Set on the idyllic Caribbean coastline of one of the most beautiful countries in Latin America, author Edo Brenes weaves together the heart breaking and humbling stories of three generations of the same family. Love and life is a struggle in paradise, welcome to LimÃ³n.
