Afterlife by Julia Alvarez

While mourning the loss of her husband after recently retiring, Antonia's world is thrown into further chaos with the disappearance of her sister and a pregnant undocumented teenager showing up unexpectedly at her doorstep.  Who is the most important person?  What do we owe to our loved ones when crisis strikes?  How do we hold on to faith when the world we live in seems so broken? Alvarez's novel demonstrates the strength of family bonds, which can heal a grieving heart.
