A young Mexican mother struggles to reconnect with her child in America—a “heartrending, take–no–prisoners” novel (Publishers Weekly) and National Book Award finalist.



A vital and unsparing vision of America from National Book Award finalist Susan Straight. At three years Elvia was placed in foster care when her mother, Serafina, an undocumented migrant worker, was deported. Twelve years later, Serafina risks everything to return to the United States and the daughter she was forced to abandon.
