border and then north to Chicago. There they struggle to find work--cleaning, sewing, washing dishes--always careful to remain invisible so the authorities wont arrest and deport them.Despite the familys ordeals, hope and love can be found--in Marias budding romance with Tomas, in the help given by a kindly midwife and priest, and most of all, in the stories Maria tells to lift the familys spirits, of a little sparrow who brings a rainbow.Starkly realistic and tenderly poetic, this powerfully moving story of the secret lives of immigrants who courageously triumph over incredible obstacles is not to be missed.
