mobi The Border

The BorderAnd Pato Arbo Marcos and Gladys are powerless as the lives they once knew are taken from themThen they are seen by the gunmen They run Except they have nowhere to go The narcos responsible for their families' 4 12 out of 5 starsThe Border is a heart breaking harrowing tale that definitely puts a human face on illegal immigration It is timely considering the political climate in the United States right now with all of this fear mongering and talk of building a wall In the Author's Note Mr Schafer states My hope for anybody who reads this novel is that it inspires you to take a moment and imagine what drives someone to come to this country and what that journey is like whether legal or illegal Empathy begins with the recognition that everyone has a story I think it is extremely unfortunate that the people who most need to read this book to open their eyes hearts and minds to humanity will never pick it upI have never read a book uite like this one I honestly did not think that I was going to like it very much and I was pleasantly surprised Thank you Mr Schafer for humanizing well humans And thank you to NetGalley for the ARC I'll definitely be purchasing this one for the library
