Description


 

This novel is based on the chilling true story of a young family caught in the middle of political corruptions and unspeakable violence during Guatemala’s 36 year civil war. Tired of watching city workers endure countless human and civil rights violations- Alberto organizes a union. When he and his co-workers organize a strike- Alberto and his family find themselves on the government’s extermination list. The violent situation leaves Alberto separated from his family and forces them all to flee for their lives. Will their will to survive be enough to help them escape and reunite? And if so- will they ever find another place they can call home?
