The View from Casa Chepitos: A Journey Beyond the Border
On a ten-day visit to San Miguel de Allende, Judith Gille falls in love…with a hot pink house on a rundown alleyway. Without consulting her husband or knowing how she’s going to pay for it, she makes the owners a full price offer.
Despite a bumpy start in the new culture, Gille and her family eventually befriend their neighbors on callejón de Chepito and form a close bond with the Cordova clan. As their affection for the lively Mexican family grows, so do the complications of their cross-cultural relationship. When the oldest daughter seeks to cross the border illegally, the lives of the two families become inextricably entwined.
The View from Casa Chepitos puts a human face on the immigration controversy and paints an intimate portrait of Mexican life. But the story also explores the deeper issues women of all ages and cultures face: affirming their self-worth and purpose, building enduring relationships, and discovering where it is they truly belong.
