After the Hurricane, by Leah Franqui
Santiago Vega escaped his poor and emotionally abusive Puerto Rican family through hard work. A stellar student, he went to Stanford and Yale Law, and on to a successful career. But mental illness and a move back to San Juan alienate him from his daughter Elena. After his disappearance in the wake of Hurricane Maria, Elena reluctantly travels to Puerto Rico to find him. During her search she learns more about his life and her own family.
