"From a mother whose children were taken from her at the U.S. border by the American government in 2018 and another mother who helped reunite the family, a crucial, searing story about the immigration odyssey, family separation and reunification, and the power of individuals to band together to overcome even the most cruel and unjust circumstances"-- Provided by publisher.

    This straightforward and heartfelt story of one family's journey from terror to a tenuous security is told in two voices. In part one, small-business owner Cruz recounts her family's terrifying odyssey fleeing violence in Guatemala after her husband's murder and her own close call. Once in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention, Cruz is shocked to be sent to a facility in Arizona, while her children are delivered to a foster family in New York City. In part two, Collazo recounts her founding of the organization Immigrant Families Together in order to channel the rage and frustration she felt after learning about the forced family separation policy, and the challenges she overcame to help asylum seekers like Cruz. Both narrators embody the power of determined women in this unfiltered story about human suffering, the inhumane asylum process, and the joy of organizing generous and well-intentioned people across faith traditions for the common good. A recommended reading list and a section titled How to Get Involved will guide readers who share Cruz and Collazo's urge to help. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
