Sleep of the Innocents is the story of ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances in their daily struggle for survival in a world gone mad. Set against the background of a civil war in a fictional Central American country, the novel chronicles the plight of the women of Soledad whose family relationships become battlegrounds for sexual roles and expectations in a male-dominated society.

Carole Fernández’s first novel is a mature, socially conscious work that grapples with important contemporary themes in a cross-cultural context. The characters are of flesh and blood, readily involving the reader in their real-life conflicts.
