Vigil

While Ana waits at her beloved's deathbed, she thinks back on her life and the incredible journey that brought her to this unlikely place. Ana's story takes her from war-torn El Salvador, to a convent in the United States, and finally to a wealthy California estate where she is employed as the nanny for a dysfunctional family caught up in the the throes of a decadent life. Despite her own emotional wounds, she is able to bring love and healing to her affluent yet spiritually bereft employers - gifts that no money could ever by. In the course of Samartin's work as a psychotherapist, she has been awed by those rare individuals who, after having endured unimaginable trauma, not only survive, but flourish. Her work is inspired by those unique and courageous people who are able to turn personal tragedy into profound inner strength that has the power to transform those around them. Vigil is the story of one such woman and the family she sets her heart on saving. Readers will be spellbound by Vigil's magical language and provocative themes; this is Samartin's most impressive work yet.

Mofongo

Sebastian dreams of running like the wind across the soccer field and scoring countless goals, but his heart defect forces him to stand on the sidelines and watch. His parents overprotect him, but they’re unable to shield him from their family problems or the bullies at school. Fortunately, Sebastian finds sanctuary in his grandmother’s kitchen. Working side by side, preparing exotic dishes from her homeland of Puerto Rico, they discover a new purpose that brings them healing and hope. A story for the entire family, “Mofongo” is about creating heaven on earth, and learning how to listen with your heart. Readers will come away with a renewed appreciation for life and the delicious realization that a meal prepared with love not only feeds the body, it nurtures the soul.
