Resumen:

Hard Red Spring : In 1902, a young girl watches her family's life destroyed by corrupt officials and inscrutable natives. In 1954, the wife of the American ambassador becomes trapped in the intrigue of a cold war love affair. In 1983, an evangelical missionary discovers that the Good News may not be good news at all to the Mayan refugees she hopes to save. and in 1999, the mother of an adopted Mayan daughter embarks on a Roots Tour only to find that the history she seeks is not safely in the past.

Through the stories of these characters, Hard Red Spring reveals the brutal realities of history as they play out in the lives of individuals swept up in a legacy of American intervention. As heartrending as it is masterfully written, Kelly Kerney's novel vividly evokes The Land of Eternal Spring in all its promise and all its devastating failures.
