The Salvation of La Purísima. T.M. Spooner. ISBN: 978-0-915745-88-3. $22.95.
The Salvation of La Purísima is a profound and heartrending look at a disenfranchised and poverty-ridden society that, driven by the necessity of its own survival, culturally pressures its members to make a perilous migration and earn money whether they want to go or not. Highly recommended. - Midwest Book Review
Perhaps the biggest achievement of the story are real characters that you quickly learn to like and care about. Consequently, there's a more human face put on the current phenomenon of "illegal immigration." These people are not simply numbers and statistics but, rather, living, breathing human beings. I look forward to seeing more from Señor Spooner.
