A multigenerational story, the novel moves from Istanbul to Barcelona, Havana and New York. It’s Elizabeth Graver’s fifth, described as both “an immigrant’s tale and a hero’s journey,” and a haunting, inspiring meditation on the tenacity of women. Inspired by Graver’s own grandmother, Kantika celebrates the insistence on seizing beauty and grabbing hold of one’s precious life.
