Another book about self-discovery. How dare a woman be so self-indulgent. That seems to be going around a lot these days. As I read Todos Santos a little of Eat, Pray, Love came to mind, but this books is far different. Catherine is far from self-indulgent or self-centered.
After her husbands infidelities, Catherine Barnes goes on a journey to Guatemala. An artist and writer who is on a self-discovery journey working on a picture book in one of the most exotic and political turmoil country!
While battling with her husband's constant affairs and trying to focus on her work, her son, Isaac flunks eighth grade and finds himself in the care of his Aunt Zelda. Isaac gets into trouble which leads to an accident and his kidnapping.
As horrifying as this story can be, it is nice to read a book about a mother and son as both individuals are going through their own journey towards self-discovery and growth.
