Testimonials

Alternately searing and soaring, The Cost of Our Lives explores the multiple layers of her family history, from the parallel family sired and discarded by her beloved father to the emotional complexity of her own contemporary life. Fearless and unflinching, Linda Gonzalez shares a memoir suffused with loss and love, confusion and uncertainty, yet ultimately filled with gratitude and joy.
