about this item

At a river near his home in the Philippine countryside, respected doctor Manolo Lualhati encounters the unthinkable?a young woman with wings. After several incredible visits, he coaxes her to stay behind?to quit flying to the stars with her sisters each night?so they can marry. Tala agrees, but soon finds herself grounded in a new life where she must negotiate Manolo’s parents’ well-intentioned scrutiny. As Tala tries to keep long-held family secrets from her new husband, Manolo begins questioning the gaps in her stories, and his suspicions push him even further from the truth. Weaving in the perspectives of Manolo’s parents, Tala’s siblings, and the all-seeing housekeeper, The Hour of Daydreams delves into contemporary issues of identity and trust in marriage, while exploring how myths can take root from the seeds of our most difficult truths.
