Having thus been buffeted by fate, which wove its web without caring a jot for my own wishes, I resigned myself to studying law, a subject in which I had no interest whatsoever but which did not go against the practically compulsory customs that most young people of my age and social class subjected themselves to. If I ended up writing poetry it was, more than for any other reason, to make use of the modest skill that I had acquired by the mere act of living.
Between and he taught at several universities in the United States. In he won the Prince of Asturias Literature Prize. Pacheco studied at UNAM and was a regular contributor to the leading cultural journals and supplements in Mexico in the s. He translated T. Since her first collection, Ese puerto existe , was published in , the Peruvian-born poet Blanca Varela — has been at the forefront of contemporary Hispano-American poetry. With the instinct of the true poet, she knows when to keep quiet.
Her poetry does not explain or argue. Nor is it a confidence. It is a sign, a spell with which to face, fight and approach the world. In , after periods living in Washington D. In a compilation of her books appeared as Canto villano, and a definitive edition of her complete works was later published as Donde todo termina abre las alas No quiero que me repitan que los muertos no pierden la sangre; que la boca podrida sigue pidiendo agua.
As the story progressed, Belly did help Lily to meet a good guy, form friends, and learn to let go of the past. This was a good thing as I felt that Lily needed to let loose.

It took me a while to warm up to Lily. The romance between Lily and Dr. Cole was on the slow side. They did not interact a lot with each other in this book. Which, I would have liked to have seen they do more of as I did think there was going to be more romance. The magical Shelter Island sounds like a place that I would want to live.
It was nice to get to see Jasmine from Haunting Jasmine make a brief appearance in this book. This was a quick read. The way the book ended lead me to believe that I have not seen the last of Lily, Bella, or Dr. Enchanting Lily is a charming read. Aug 13, Robin rated it really liked it. Told in alternate viewpoints, this was a charming story about Lily, a young widow, who moves to an island in Puget Sound and opens a vintage clothing shop.
Along the way she learns to trust and love again with the help of an adorable and sweet white cat. This was a quick feel-good gentle read that would appeal to anyone who likes a little magical realism and loves cats. It's possible that Jan Karon or Donna Ball fans might find these good-hearted village stories appealing.
Sep 12, Carol rated it it was ok. This was a sweet and quick to read romance but it is not a book I will remember. I had expected Kitty to play a bigger role. While the cat's awareness of the emotions and needs of the people, and the introduction of spirits haunting the cottage and the vintage clothing, could have been a story in itself, it wasn't explored and left me wanting more.
The whole story slid to an unfulfilled ending. Did Lily's romance develop, did she go forward with a successful business partnership, what happened w This was a sweet and quick to read romance but it is not a book I will remember. Did Lily's romance develop, did she go forward with a successful business partnership, what happened with Bish?
Perhaps the author plans to follow up in a later novel? Oct 19, Liz Websdale rated it it was ok Shelves: This story started off well and really went no where much in the end.
Reads like so many other stories. A widow packs ip leaves her past life and starts again in a seaside town. Kitty somehow doesn't quite really add a lot to the story nor do the lingering ghosts. The other townsfolk who come into Lily's vintage clothing store and have their lives changed , personalities are never really developed. I didn't really find my self caring about the romance between Lily and the local Vet, Ben. Everyt This story started off well and really went no where much in the end.
Everything in the story seems to just be skimmed over making for a what is a light fluffy read.
Aug 23, Joy rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a charming book and a quick read I read it in 3 days. I would read another book by this author. Oct 29, Donia rated it did not like it. How does a book such as this get published?
If there were something else to read in my house I would not have read this story. The first problem with the book and the problem that continued is that there isn't one thing Lily, the main character ever says or ever does that is positive. Every decision she makes is stupid, everything that comes out of her mouth is negative and so the story goes.
I know she was depressed from losing her husband but the wandering tale of her woe does not make a good How does a book such as this get published? Como nuevo! Like New!.
