Tree of Sighs
When Midwestern Mexican-American Altagracia receives a phone call out of the blue, she embarks on a journey that forces her to confront a violent past. Her journey, both geographical and spiritual, brings her face-to-face with her former border town home and with the terror and beauty she hoped to put behind her forever. Author Guerrero has lived in the Midwest for years, but grew up in Nogales, Arizona. An excerpt from Tree of Sighs was awarded a Christopher Isherwood Foundation Award.
