Book Summary:
Delores Sanchez is a young Honduran woman fighting for a better life, one she hopes she will find in the United States. Along with her two younger brothers, Delores begins a perilous journey through Central America to Mexico, hoping to one day make it across the Mexican American border. The journey is fraught with peril, and Delores tries to desperately to protect her brothers from the kidnappers, thieves, and hunger that waylay them on their road to freedom. “You must be careful here in Orizba. There are people here, much like in Honduras, who want to steal money and hurt people.” On the American side of the border lives Eva Jordan, a privileged, educated, American professor, who takes a new position in South Texas to establish herself away from her family. Eva visits Mexico as a tourist, marveling at the beautiful scenes that have been carefully curated for visitors. She soon realizes that the struggles of the people making their way into the United States were beyond simple black and white language.
