“Qinaya” and “Achachi.”
Aymaran for “Cloud” and “Grandfather.”
Sometimes, two words are all you need to tell a whole story.
Gabriel’s retired life is turned upside down when his son and daughter-in-law adopt an orphaned girl from Peru. He was barely much of a father to his own son… how is he going to take to being a grandfather to a kid from a whole other country? When surprises and complications arise, can he learn that you’re never too old to change your mind?
The story is made up of moments of sharing between the grandfather and the granddaughter, as well as various interactions around this dilemma with his wife, his lifelong friends, and his own son himself. But when surprise twists complicate matters, true feelings blossom and Life takes on a whole new palette.
A touching tale about life, love, family, and following your heart. Heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure, you’ll embrace this book like a warm hug from a loved one.
