The Stranger by David Bergen

Iso, a young guatemalan woman works at a fertility clinic in the highland of Guatamala which caters to rich women who hope that the waters of the nearby lake will help their chances of conceiving. Iso becomes pregnant by the clinic’s doctor who is gone before she can tell him. The daughter is taken from her and brought to America and so begins Iso’s journey to reclaim her baby. Political and highly emotional this book reminds us of the great divide between the rich and the poor and the ties that bind us.
