Kathi Macias, brings us a story of two women. Very different women. One settled here in the states who loses her husband working border patrol. The other a woman living beyond the border, seeking a way here. I wondered how two women could be so different, but yet have so much in common. These women are searching for the same thing, peace and understanding. When we are desperate, God has a way of showing up just when we need Him the most.

I love how Kathi brings a story alive and makes it so real. When you begin to turn the pages of a Kathi Macias book get ready because you are going to be looking deep into our own heart. What can I take away from this beautifully written story? We are often so quick to judge. We see things as only black and white. Our lives are not black and white. We must begin searching beyond what something looks like and search for the story within.

We all put up such borders around our hearts.  Borders to keep people out. That way we don't have to feel or give. This story teaches us to open up and look beyond ourselves, beyond our anger and fear, and reach for our Savior and His wonderful free gift of grace.

As always, Kathi, tells a story of redemption and freedom of the soul. I didn't understand the cover of the book until I read the story. Once you understand the story it all comes together and leaves you filled with Christ's unconditional love.

This book was given to me by Kathi Macias for it's review.
