In telling the story of one family's journey from Colombia to make new lives for themselves elsewhere, Engel explores the wrenching experience of being uprooted and documents the forces--borders, poverty, immigration polcies, and language barriers--that keep people divided. Making tangible the very real struggle immigrants face and powerfully demonstrating how hope and hearbreak are inextricable from each other, this brief, compelling account of the gritty realities experienced by Elena and Mauro gains further texture by being interwoven with the magic of Andean myth.
