A Tale of Immigration, Temptation, and Betrayal in the Sixties
Most Americans don't understand or respect the importance of Mexican migrant workers to the American economy. They have provided a workforce that accepts the difficult jobs most refuse to do, and accept extremely low wages. Carlos Crosses the Line is a novel that is set against a 60's background that reveals abuse, cruelty, and racism.
Carlos Montoya crossed one line by forsaking his culture’s unquestioning faith. He leaped past another as he entered California illegally during the free-love irreligious 1960s. There, three women tempted him to abandon more of his limits.
—One sought to comfort him.
—One used him against her husband—his employer—in marital combat.
—One demanded everything.
That summer of 1968 he fled California, falsely accused, beaten, and terrified.
Twenty-six years later, in Michocán Mexico, the beautiful Lilia Gomez arrives on Carlos’s doorstep, challenging him to recall those days and to question his old transgressions. And lurking in his background, what must never be revealed, is the major crime that haunts his past.
