Review: The Cost of Dreams by Gary Stelzer

Flora Enriquez trusts that she has found safe haven for her young family in the remote U.S. Southwest, after fleeing the murderous environs of Central America where her parents were slain in a civil war. Only to find that all of her life's greatest challenges, by far, still lie before her.

Received from the publicist for review.

This was quite foreign for someone who lives in New England, but the story completely envelops you and draws you into Flora's world. While I can't say that I actually liked the characters, I did understand their motivations and they were very well written.

This one gets three stars. The story itself is rather depressing, made especially so because there is some truth to the experiences portrayed. The book was very well written and engrossing. While I found it rather bizarre at points it was certainly suspenseful. This is something I have never read before!

★★☆☆ = Liked It

This is actually only the second review I've read of this book but I think I'm going to have to check it out.
