The scope of Lost Children Archive is simply astounding. In the same pages where the story takes us road-tripping through the rural, American southwest; it is also providing an intimate, complex portrait of a family. A father, a mother, two young children. Much of the narrative is told from the mother's perspective as she reflects on their lives together while remaining uncertain of their futures. Layered upon this story of a single family is the larger tragedy of refugee migration and the many other families often forced to separate and travel alone; not for leisure but from necessity. This tragedy is echoed and reinforced throughout by the father's interest in studying the ancestral lands of the Apaches, an entire people group forced to migrate. It reminds us that our current draconian policies surrounding immigration is nothing unique to American history. Necessary and haunting and masterfully crafted, this is a book that stays with you long after you close the covers.
This novel is simply beautiful. For over four hundred pages I was captivated by the world of Marie Grosholtz, one of the most enduring characters I have ever read. Her perspective of life and the history unfolding around her is both wonderful and heart-wrenching. I didn't want to leave, I didn't want her story to end. I loved every bit of this joyous book.
