Great thanks to my family and friends in Kilgore, El Paso, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Bloomington, Denver, Des Moines, and beyond. I owe a special debt of gratitude to my parents who, among their many other virtues, never stopped showing me the beauty of East Texas. And there would be no novel without the patience and support of my husband, Arnulfo, and our son, Liam Miguel. I hope that Liam Miguel will show his sequel how it's done.
