Summary
Don Fidencio and Don Celestino are brothers with more in common than either will admit: fiercely independent? sharp as tacks? and stubborn. Between them stands an argument so old neither wants to concede. The dispute appears destined to die with them. Enter Socorro? the kindhearted Mexican housekeeper with whom Celestino falls in love. She leads the begrudging pair on a quest far into Mexico to end their estrangement, while they still can
Summary
Don Celestino has not spoken to his grumpy older brother, Don Fidencio, in years, ever since...well, it's not quite clear what started off the estrangement. At any rate, prompted by his lovely housekeeper (and much younger love), Socorro, Celestino frees Fidencio from the terrible nursing home his daughter and son-in-law have placed him in, and the two aging, bickering men (and hopeful Socorro) take off on a journey to Mexico, where they hope to investigate the old family legend at the heart of their dispute. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
