LET IT RAIN COFFEE

by Angie Cruz
Simon and Schuster
ISBN 0-7432-1203-7

What starts off as a my father-in-law-is-living-with-us-and-wrecking-our-lives book conceals many political, revolutionary secrets. LET IT RAIN COFFEE is at times poignant and stark, and at other times sweet and innocent. The heady blend will keep readers turning pages.

Questions to discuss:
1) Is Esperanza stuck in the past or is Don Chan?
2) How harmless is Don Chan?
3) Who is Miraluz and how important is she to the story?
4) What do you think of Mrs. Hernandez? does she love her husband?
5) Did Bobby and Hush really have a chance?
