Both Sides of the Border

By Terry Overton


Dolores, Emilio, and Ernesto are on a quest to America to find work and to save their family, who has been devastated by their father's accident and the drought in their home country of Honduras. But making their way to America would be too expensive for a family stricken by poverty.

With only their faith in God to see them through, the teenaged siblings set off for their new home, despite the threat from the cartel, corrupt police officers, starvation, and death. Meanwhile, Eva Jordan is determined to start a new life on the American side of the Mexican border, hoping to shake off the scars from a horrible marriage.

With her mother's concern for her daughter living so close to the border, Eva decides to take a vacation to the other side to sharpen up her Spanish and relax before her new job begins. She is struck by the beautiful tourist towns of Mexico, but slowly, her eyes are opened to the dangers that are knocking at her front door. But when a hurricane washes away the border walls, will the two sides collide in hatred or unite in perfect harmony?

Book Takeaway:

Christians can be living examples of how to handle crises by opening communication and respecting the viewpoints of people along the border.

Why the author wrote this book:

Both sides of the border argument are right and both sides are wrong. How do Christians react to the crisis of security and humanity? These issues are examined through the personal stories of two women from Both sides of the Border.
