Try To Remember

try to rememberA novel by Iris Gomez (Grand Central Publishing, 2010) 
ISBN: 978-0-446-55619-4

TRY TO REMEMBER draws on my years of professional experience with harsh & poorly understood deportation laws that leave many lawful immigrants vulnerable to expulsion long after they’ve made this country their home. But this novel is also at heart a love story – about the enduring power of love in a Latino family, even as it struggles.

Culturally savvy Colombian teenager Gabriela de la Paz, newly arrived in Miami, is a devoted daughter who is trying to keep her volatile and mentally ill father from jeopardizing their family’s green card status and driving them all into exile in disgrace. But as her father slips deeper into darkness and her mother slips deeper into denial, it is Gabi alone who must face the impending family crisis and ultimately decide for herself whether love means more than loyalty.
