Book of Rosy, The: A Mothers Story of Separation at the Border

Book of Rosy, The: A Mothers Story of Separation at the Border

Author(s): Julie Schwietert Collazo, Rosayra Pablo Cruz

Location(s): Arizona, Guatemala

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Contemporary

This book promises to be everything Jeanine Cummins’ controversial novel American Dirt wasn’t — and, this time, it’s all true. When Rosy Cruz decides to flee her violence-ridden home in Guatemala for the United States, she takes two of her children on an impossible journey to the Arizona border. There, instead of finding peace, they are ripped apart by border officials implementing President Trump’s new “zero tolerance” policy. As she connects with Immigrant Families Together founder Julie Collazo, who shares in the storytelling, Cruz reveals the extent of the horror at border facilities, and offers hope in the face of desperate odds.
