Alice and her husband, Jake, own a barbecue restaurant in Austin, Texas. Hardworking and popular in their community, they have a loving marriage and thriving business, but Alice still feels that something is missing, lying just beyond reach.
Carla is a strong-willed young girl who's had to grow up fast, acting as caretaker to her six-year-old brother Junior. Years ago, her mother left the family behind in Honduras to make the arduous, illegal journey to Texas. But when Carla's grandmother dies and violence in the city escalates, Carla takes fate into her own hands-and with Junior, she joins the thousands of children making their way across Mexico to America, facing great peril for the chance at a better life.
Poignant and arresting, The Same Sky is about motherhood, resilience, and faith - the story of two very different families on both sides of the American border.
A deeply affecting look at the contrast between middle-class US life and the brutal reality of Central American children so desperate they'll risk everything
After reading The Same Sky, you just might view the world a little differently. And isn't that the goal of all great art?
Emotionally gripping . . . a novel that brilliantly attaches us to broader perspectives. It is a needed respite from the angry politics surrounding border issues that, instead of dividing us, connects us to our humanity
It takes a skilled, compassionate writer to craft an authentic, moving page-turner from a complex social issue like immigration, but Ward nails it
Poignant and bittersweet . . . Eyre's wrenching fifth novel is a study in contrasts . . . Carla's journey is powerfully rendered and will stick with readers long after they close the book
Ward writes with great empathy . . . Earnest and well-told. Heartstrings will be pulled
