Mary is nineteen, adrift, and looking for something meaningful to take her over. Then Jose Luis enters her life. A refugee from El Salvador and its bloody civil war, Jose has been smuggled to the US as part of the sanctuary movement. Mary cannot help but fall in love with the movement and the man. And little by little, she begins to reveal to Jose Luis the part of herself she has never known..." Superbly lyrical, a story of love without borders. "A great beauty of a book. I am so proud of Martinez for standing with and for the disappeared."
