Flowers in the Dust is a beautiful and sophisticated story about love and redemption. Ms. Alvarez takes us to a time and place that most of us have only heard about but never understood. Chola's determination and strength remind us of the resilience of the spirit and what it means to be human. I was touched to know this is a true story and it reminded me that real life is much more fascinating than any fiction.
