Short story "Let Me Take Your Hands" (published in The Woven Tale Press, Dec. 2017)
Short story "Let Me Take Your Hands": "On the summer night when the police took his housekeeper Consuelo away, Antonio Guerrera felt helpless for many reasons. One was that he himself had paid Consuelo’s wages in cash for years, rather than insisting she become a tax-paying American citizen. Another was that the police refused to listen to him or release Consuelo on his recognizance: she was to be sent back to Mexico as quickly as Antonio would consign a failed mug from his potter’s wheel to the slop bin. But most of all, he felt helpless and much too old because he could explain nothing to Tess, Consuelo’s daughter."
