ning journalist Linda Valdez tells her personal story of marrying a Mexican man whose difficulties in getting a visa led him to cross the border illegally.A former Arizona attorney general says this book should be required reading for Donald Trump.But that’s not because this is a political treatise. It isn’t. This is a true story that reads like a novel.It’s about how love turns vast differences in background, culture, and experience into a family’s biggest asset.It’s a journey of discovery about the real Mexico and the real Mexicans—and why the United States is lucky to have them for neighbors.It’s about the personal triumphs and challenges of raising a child to love both cultures.Throw in the blessing of two powerful matriarchs, the ghost of Pancho Villa, and a purposefully mistranslated wedding, you get a story told with humor and an emotional charge that is both timely and timeless.
