Caminos tells the story of Mercedes González Conde and her daughter, granddaughter and great-grandson. Each of them live and love, cope with and compound their inner troubles as issues of abandonment, attachment, identity and rootlessness circle around and through them. The novel is set in the northwest Spanish province of Asturias and the eastern United States -- primarily West Virginia and Ohio -- with scenes in Mexico, Canada, Prague and Berlin.
