About the Edition

The first time Isabel meets her father-in-law, Omar, he"s already dead--an apparition appearing uninvited on her wedding day. Her husband, Martin, still unforgiving for having been abandoned by his father years ago, confesses that he never knew the old man had died. So Omar asks Isabel for the impossible: persuade Omar"s family--especially his wife, Elda--to let him redeem himself. Isabel and Martin settle into married life in a Texas border town, and Omar returns each year on the celebratory Day of the Dead. Every year Isabel listens, but to the aggrieved Martin and Elda, Omar"s spirit remains invisible. Through his visits, Isabel gains insight into not just the truth about his disappearance and her husband"s childhood but also the ways grief can eat away at love. When Martin"s teenage nephew crosses the Mexican border and takes refuge in Isabel and Martin"s home, questions about past and future homes, borders, and belonging arise that may finally lead to forgiveness--and alter all their lives forever.

  Book Review: Everyone Knows You Go Home. June 8, 4 Comments. Book Summary: Isabel didn’t meet her father-in-law Omar until he was dead. He was a ghost who appeared on her wedding day. Her husband Martin never forgave his father for leaving their family when he was a boy, so he wanted nothing to do with him.   Everyone Knows You Go Home follows a group of migrants as they make their way from Mexico to the US. Each short chapter reveals a buried memory, the sacrifices they make, and the price they pay for seeking the American dream. Their actions touch generations. Sylvester's spare writing allows emotion to come through unfiltered. It’d been so long since she had felt there were parts of her unknown to him, and she’d begun to feel like a barren field, unworthy of exploring. That was the thing about sharing your life with someone. Curiosity brought you together, but that enchantment is not infinite.” ― Author: Natalia Sylvester. Product Information.
