Mona Passage starts with the harrowing tale of Galan, who flees Cuba with his family on board a raft. It is clear he has a special bond with his sister, however she is removed from the raft, along with his mother. In the present day, Pat is a Coast Guard caption who travels the same waters to catch smugglers. It is clear that this path between South America and the United States is full of many kinds of danger.

Overall, the writing allows the reader to become immediately connected to the characters, as the story involves a narrative familiar to many immigrants coming to the U.S. in search of a better life. Overall, I can't wait to read more!
