Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday. This meme is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. I get to participate again this week (YAY!) because I've received a package from Robyn Schechter of Carol Fass Publicity & Public Relations, New York. She sent me The Cost of Dreams by Gary Stelzer. Thank you, Robyn!

This is the first book in the series of novels that depicts a young Mayan woman's extraordinary journey of survival. Set against the vivid backdrop of a Central American country in turmoil and a desolate Mexican wilderness, The Cost of Dreams introduces a masterful new writer of fiction. Gary Stelzer, a retired Midwest physician, draws upon an ordeal of one of his most memorable patients for a novel that's both a powerful, compelling page-turner and a poignant illumination of a woman's-and a people's-struggle to survive.
