Cycles
by Maria de Andrade



A young couple meets during a Carnival celebration in their beloved city of Lisbon, beginning a passionate and challenging journey together that will span two countries and two political revolutions. Told through Tiago and Marta’s eyes, Cycles explores how lives, families and careers changed, for the worse and for the better, as Portugal fought to find democracy in the early 1970s in the wake of the Carnation Revolution, a turbulent military coup d'état. When the couple eventually fulfills Tiago's dream of immigrating to Canada, they experience a new form of political unrest as they settle in Montreal during the Quebec Referendum. Together they must struggle to redefine themselves as they learn a new language, make friends and try to succeed and get ahead in their new country. This thoughtful, compelling novel takes on universal themes and offers an insightful take on the complexities of politics, family, marriage, and women in the workplace. Most of all, it illustrates how love, in all its forms, can endure in the face of hardship.
