Portant fixture within the contemporary segments of the book He is a Mexican American who watched his arents struggle in Mexico while awaiting their US citizenship To Puff prove that he is an American he joins the US Border Patrol and hopes to help others see that there is a right way and a wrong way to get to America However after many nights on the job and some heart wrenching moments he starts to realize that not everything is so black and whiteI found it so compelling that McCoy chose to tell these two types of stories along side of one another I would never have thought that German experiences during WWII would work so well alongside the current debate about immigration to the United States from Mexico It also really made me stop and think about what life is like for those who are desperately seeking admittance into the land of the free I appreciate that McCoy is shining a light on something in society that truly needs a solution I can see the reasoning behind both those that support stricter immigration laws and those who want to cross the border I don tretend to have answers to how we can solve this conflict but I do think generating discussion and thought around the topic is crucial Discrimination and Laid to Ruin (Lancelots Fall, prejudice are nasty beasts that havelagued humanity since the dawn of time We can never truly uell their vicious nature until we learn to see those who are different from us as valuableIn addition I was also drawn to these characters and their struggles In Leyendas Negras particular I found myself relating to Reba She is unhappy with her life but can t uiteut her finger on what s missing She thinks if she can just move to California and just snag her dream job then everything will be fine Reba even remarks that she d always been melancholic and unsatisfied with nearly everything about herself The Iron Palace (Shadowed Path, pg 32 I often have that mentality and I m trying to break myself out of that way of thinking I have so many wonderful things in my life but sometimes I just crave those things that are slightly beyond my grasp I think that is human nature but theroblem is some of us dwell on what s lacking rather than focus on what is right in front of us Like Reba I need to calm down take a deep breath and just enjoy living There is so much heartache and hardship in the world I need to be thankful that my life is comfortable and I am loved I am learning to be comfortable in my own skin and I always find it some comforting to find characters who are going through the same struggles Reba held up a mirror for me to explain my own flaws and think of ways to grow beyond what I see reflectedThe Baker s Daughter is a book with so many delicious layers written in compelling Bad, Bad Bluebloods (Rich Boys of Burberry Prep prose It is a critiue of love the human spirit and racism It is also a look into the hearts and minds of strong women who have made impossible choices in the midst of bleak times Ultimately The Baker s Daughter is a triumph of the human heart and the impressions we make on the lives of others I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy historical fiction women s history and those looking for critiues on families and love I don t think itsossible for me to capture in this review how much I loved this book and how deeply it spoke to my heartIn closing I d like to leave you with a "uote that really spoke to me The marks on our lives are like music notes on " that really spoke to me The marks on our lives are like music notes on In the Cavern

oven had cooled to the touch and the upstairs had grown warm with bodies cocooned in cotton sheets she slipped her feet from beneath the thin coverlet and uietly made her way through the darkness neglecting her slippers for fear that their clip might wake her sleeping husbandFavorite Character ElsieLeast Favorite Character Major Kremer What to say It really had theotential to be a great novel but the non chronological jumping around between families felt like a chore I uite literally could not have cared any less about Reba and Riki and I wish they had been left out of the book altogether After reading a bio of the author I realize that they were meant to be loosely based on her own experience but truthfully I found them to be annoying I felt that the author was trying to make a arallel between the US Border Patrol and Hitler s SS but againreally The other complaint I have about it may be limited to the Kindle edition but I could not even read the chapte This book ended up being very disappointing although I thought the lot had a lot of The Articles of Release (The Release potential It read very much like Sarah s Key switching back and forth between a modern story and a WWII story in Germany But it had the sameroblem as Sarah s Key the modern line was almost completely uninteresting and I just kept waiting to get back to the WWII story I don t think this book was written very well and it relied mostly on dramatic events to be exciting I refer books that are written in a way that makes any event interesting not just the dramatic ones I often prefer books that are written in a way that makes any event interesting not just the dramatic ones I often myself bored and skimming ahead to get to some action I also don t think the characters were very well written they all seemed to be either really flat or written as if the author hadn t decided yet whatwho she wanted them to be It might have been a stronger book if it had ended after the main action but it dragged on for 50 years which is difficult to keep interesting when the characters aren t very well constructedAnd at the risk of sounding like a monster I found the connection of Holocaust victims to illegal aliens entering the US to be ludicrous bordering on offensive I can hardly believe the author had the nerve to try and make a connection between the slaughter of millions of innocent eople during WWII.
