The Zavala Chronicles
Love, Faith, and Obstinate Grit to Save Herself and Her Family are the Only Weapons a Mexican Mother has to Fight Against Criminal Danger, Poverty, Alcoholism, Domestic Violence, and Bigotry
An Extraordinary Saga of Struggle and Triumph
The Zavala Chronicles is a real-life story: a culmination of memories, family recollections, confessions, and facts about the large Zavala family. Prepare for an astonishing, wild ride with the Zavalas and their fight to survive poverty, corruption, violent enemies, and lawlessness in México; their efforts to build a new life in the United States; and their struggle to cope with a new culture, a new language, and the inevitable family dysfunctionality and division caused by differences in values of the Mexican and American cultures. Told mostly from the point of view of Carlos Zavala, who chose to break out of long-established family patterns, this story is wrought with conflict, violence, emotion, and real-life characters that you will either love or hate. Riveting, compelling, heartbreaking, and inspiring, The Zavala Chronicles is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
