In the Latino town of Agua Mansa, the people flock to the Botánica Oshún seeking charms, herbs, and guidance from the shop's owner, Perla Portillo. Among her customers are a businessman dealing with the death of his father, an addict looking for peace, and a teenager trying to lose weight and find herself.

"[A] kaleidoscopic portrait of a [town]....[Espinoza] demonstrates a deep understanding of his characters. Setting their lives against Perla's provides an inventive way to reflect the community's diversity as well as its shared needs. A well crafted collection of vignettes, neatly stitched together."-Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
