‘Crossing the Line: A Marriage Across Borders’ by Linda Valdez

On a trip to Mexico in 1988, Valdez falls in love with a man from a rural Mexican village – her future husband, Sixto Valdez.

So begins their modern-day love story: he illegally crosses the border to be with her and they are married soon after.

As they each learn to love and understand the other’s family and culture, they are also faced with the challenges of the immigration system.

This is a story of two people who bring their worlds together, triumphing over hard times through love.
