Description

Set in a turbulent period of Guam history, between the Spanish-American War and World War II, the lives and loves of three Chamorro women are told in vivid detail.  A Navy seaman leaves young Amanda de Leon broken hearted.  For Sylvia de Leon Camacho, happiness ends too soon.  Life teaches the level-headed Vivian Camacho that falling for an American serviceman is futile, like reaching for the moon.  Cultural and racial prejudices magnify the distance.  Trying to build a life with one is as impossible as building a mansion on the moon.  Then a Navy civil engineer comes into Vivian's life.
