Mañanayer (Tomorrow/Yesterday) a timeless, nameless, mystical place “which probably never was, most likely never will be, but most certainly is right now. “ It is a place where the movement of Time is measured by Three Spinsters; the history of the past and future is recorded by Four Brothers who argue in their caves surrounding the town, and an ancient Tree watches over the whole place, holding it in its great, motherly roots..
It is inhabited by:
Holden Finn - a young orphaned vagabond seeking his lost mother, true Love, and a place to call home.
Maria - sent to a nunnery in her youth, expelled for converting priests to the ways of love, Maria has enraptured the town with her patient, abundant charms.
Sanchez – Maria’s long time lover, possibly a sorcerer, and the sweeper of La Iglesia del Casamiento Divino (the church of the Divine Wedding)
La Doña - a mystical force of Mother Nature herself - who provides all the food for the village as well as work for lovesick girls who water the plants with their tears.
Alejandro Fuego y Fierra – the cruel dictator who rules the town with an iron fist.
Holden Finn, now 97 years old, once again walks the road to this other world that is Mañanayer. He retells tales of his life there, tales which Maria told on the eave of her execution, tales that truly make up the bricks and mortar that are this magical place – Mañanayer.
