When Alma Rivera arrives in Delaware she is full of the promise and possibilities of her new home. Hope that her daughter Maribel will be helped by the specialist support US education can provide, and faith that her husband Arturo will flourish in a country that celebrates the hard-working. But life without status, money, family and friends soon becomes unmanageable and violent. Told through a range of perspectives written with compassion and grace, Cristina Henriquez gives voice to the displaced and the unknown, and shows what it means to uproot your life in search of something better.
