What an eye opening story. Isabella and Francisco leave Mexico to get away from the violence, after her family is murdered. All she has left is her Grandfather, he helps them financially to leave.
The other main characters are Miriam, her Mom Carolyn, and her six year old son Davy. During the past year they have lost David, a boarder guard, and Miriam blames all illegals for the death of her husband.
Isabella is seven months pregnant, and her husband is very worried about her. All he needs is a job and he can find a home for her and the new baby.
Throughout all the terror you find a strong faith in God, constant prayers are being said. The trials for this about to be born baby are many, and at times you wonder if he will survive.
What a wonderful, although very sad at times, story. This is not a warm touchy-feely story, you will need tissues nearby!
I received this book from New Hope Publishers, and was not required to give a positive review.
