The Same Sky
Enter a world of rich characters and tragic story, of longing and redemption, of injustice and restored beauty. The Same Sky follows two characters from different parts of the world, both yearning for something lost and never had, both broken by life’s indiscriminating tidal waves. Carla is a young girl from Honduras who is left behind to care for her younger brother once her mother flees to the United States and her grandmother passes away. The poverty of her homeland brings hunger, want, and graphic realities that she must endure and overcome, her story climbing higher as she seeks to find refuge and familiarity in a country she’s never been to. Across the map, in Texas, is Alice, a middle-aged married entrepreneur who also has her painful longings—the pangs of childlessness. As the two narratives unfold readers will dive into a rich landscape of language, story, and great faith.
Amanda Eyre Ward has built a profound story, one she honors by telling the tale of undocumented youth in a rare and realistic stream. This read moves quickly; a climax of emotion, resulting in a clash of divine intervention and connection in which each one will unknowingly save the other.
