Forlagets beskrivelse
A New York Times Editors’ Choice

A Book Riot Best Book[s] of the Year So Far and a Buzzfeed, “The 27 Most Exciting Books Coming In 2016”

“Sumptuous . . . This is a writer who understands that exile can be as much an emotional state as a geographical one, that the agony of leaving tugs against the agony of being left behind . . . to immerse oneself in Engel’s prose is to surrender to a seductive embrace, a hypnotic beauty that mingles submersion with submission.”—New York Times Book Review

“[A] profound, daring venture . . . [Engel is] a unique and necessary voice for the Americas . . . the book is a great pleasure to read, even while it’s breaking your heart.”—San Francisco Chronicle


From award-winning author, Patricia Engel, The Veins of the Ocean is the profound and riveting story of a young woman’s journey away from her family’s painful past towards redemption and a freer future. Set in the vibrant coastal communities of Miami, the Florida Keys, with forays to Havana, and Cartagena, this is a wrenching exploration of what happens when life tests the limits of compassion, and a stunning and unforgettable portrait of fractured lives finding solace in the beauty and power of the natural world, and in one another.

“Lush and entrancing, steeped in love and sorrow, faith and myth. . . Patricia Engel is a gorgeous writer and I love the confidence of her prose. She knows the story she is telling, inside and out. She knows the story and its unfathomable depths and so that's how we experience reading this novel—fully, deeply, like an ocean.”—Roxane Gay, Book of the Month

“Fast-paced, irresistibly alluring . . . [Engel] has an all-seeing eye that misses nothing.”—Miami Herald

“Poignant. . . The Veins of the Ocean is [Engel’s] best yet . . . filled with fascinating characters and beautiful prose.” —Tampa Bay Times

“A haunting and touching tale . . . Engel’s writing is powerfully descriptive and lyrical.”—Book Riot
