A spell-binding novel of a modern-day Saint Francis, who is transformed by the drama, tragedy, and redemptive promise of one of the great migrations of history - along the river called the Rio Grande. Adrian Northwood is a painter and a very rich young man - his family contributes millions to the Vatican - whose wife and son have just died horribly. Suddenly rootless, the dazed and remorseful Northwood drives aimlessly through the United States, stopping finally at the U.S.-Mexican border. There he watches with fascination the endless stream of Mexicans and Central Americans struggling to cross the river - men, women, and glue-sniffing children in search of safety and salvation in a new world. In this squalor and misery of border-town survival, Adrian Northwood sees his future.
