Alice and her husband, Jake, own a barbecue restaurant in Austin, Texas. Hardworking and popular in their community, they have a loving marriage and a thriving business, but Alice still feels that something is missing, lying just beyond reach.
Carla is a strong-willed young girl who's had to grow up fast, acting as caretaker to her six-year-old brother, Junior, in Honduras. But when Carla's grandmother dies and violence in the city escalates, Carla takes fate into her own hands - and with Junior, she joins the thousands of children making the perilous trek across Mexico to America.
In this elegant, touching novel, the lives of Alice and Carla will intersect in a profound and surprising way as they each search for a place to belong.
