The Mapmaker's Opera : Born in Seville to a dishonored governess, Diego Clemente finds solace from the turmoil of his early years in the world of books. Presented with the tremendous opportunity to assist in compiling the first guide to the birds of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, Diego embarks on a journey that will transform his life. Arriving on the eve of the Mexican Revolution, Diego finds himself in a world of precarious beauty, where opulent henequen plantations are built on the backs of slave labor, and where the social order is on the brink of imploding. There, Diego falls in love with Sofia, the beautiful, independent daughter of a Mexican farmer, a woman who longs to be as free as the birds she also loves.
