I am so impressed with this book. Mr. Vidal, who was part of Operation Pedro Pan, is a breathtakingly honest writer and I am in awe of his bravery. I highly recommend this memoir which is described on the book jacket as "an immigrant's story of despair, endurance, and redemption." Vidal has shared a haunting story told in a lyrical voice.
