THE FRAGRANCE OF ROSES

Author(s): 
The third book of the Regalo Grande series finds Angelica and Antonio battling again to save their son, Manuel. His condition seems more desperate than before, so they make a difficult decision: Angelica will handle things at home, and Antonio will travel to his homeland to find a bone marrow donor. Though Antonio's community is uneducated medically, he believes they will risk the unknown to save Manuel. But how will Antonio raise the money to go to Mexico, and will he find a match in time?

This is a heart-wrenching story that depicts the boundless love of parents. Occasional scenes discussing medical information tell more than they show, but for the most part, the story flows well and is engaging. (Aug., 336 pp., $12.99)
