The Cost of Our Lives by Linda González is a highly emotional memoir. Linda was sixteen when a man she didn't know from México appeared at the front door of her Southern California home. Before that moment, neither Linda nor her siblings knew anything about him. Devastatingly Linda’s family portrait slowly shatters over the next few years as she made new discoveries, and realizes her very existence is because her father abandoned his first family.
Linda’s fluid language, of English and Spanish, reveals a sweeping journey over several decades. Secrets are unveiled and relationships forged and dissolved, often through painful and illuminating encounters with family on both sides of the Rio Grande. A beautiful, poignant story of families uniting across physical and emotional borders. This is a book you don't want to miss out on. Stay tuned for the audiobook release!
