To See It Through. By Jose Munoz. ISBN: 978-1-951088-08-8.
TO SEE IT THROUGH is unique in several ways. First, readers are taken into the world of immigrant smuggling, only with Diana’s Organization, there is a twist. Diana and her group do not charge people being brought in. The families are vetted to ensure that they only bring in hard working people who want to live their American dream. Another way that TO SEE IT THROUGH stands out is that readers get into the mind of those hoping to come over for a better life, explaining their hopes and dreams. The subject of honor also plays an important role in this novel, as Alexander Tupov understands the importance of paying a debt. He realizes that his life would have been entirely different, and drab had his Cold War nemesis turned him over to the authorities; Alex recognizes this, and he gladly accepts the job to clear his debt. TO SEE IT THROUGH’s setting could be Any Valley, USA; its characters your next door neighbors; its conflict is pulled from today’s headline. It’s a story of Diana and Bobby. It’s the story of each of us.
