An unusual story of a woman finding herself in ways she could not have imagined. Set in beautiful Oaxaca it takes us into the hearts, not only of Camille, but of the local people. Beautifully and evocatively written and wamly recommended.

Very readable and enjoyable. A strong plot with characters that will linger with you. Sad and poignant at times. Definitely worth picking up and adding to your TBR pile. Happy reading!

A quick read romance with an unlikable heroine who becomes tolerable. A piano teacher goes to Oaxaca to find her prize pupil and finds love. Very good when describing the culture but weak with predictability. Lightly tackles some heavy subjects like immigration, the Dreamers, class distinction and stereotypes. I enjoyed the musical and cultural  references.

Lost in Oaxaca is worth reading for the beautiful descriptions of the scenery and culture of Oaxaca. It's also worth reading for its exposition of white privilege and how it often is manifested when white Americans travel. The protagonist confronts her privilege and learns much about herself in the process, although her transformation is as quick and as complete as if we were trying to wrap this up in a 30 minute TV show. Nevertheless, this could be an effective tool for a book club discussion on the topic.
