MIRADOR at Booklife

Nate Hunter has no desire to visit Chiapas, Mexico. It’s 1993, dawn of the Internet Age, and his star as a brilliant computer engineer is on the rise. He wants to stay put and focus on his work. But his wife, Sarah, a dedicate nurse, wants to save the world. Invited to join a mission trip to the village of Mirador, deep in the Lancadon Jungle, she decides she’s going, and Nate won’t let her go alone. He knows the looming enactment of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is causing unrest among the campesinos and the government is cracking down on protests. The pastor leading the trip insists it’s safe. Beneath the promised safety and surface calm, a rebellion is brewing. A group of peasants calling themselves Zapatistas is preparing for war. By the time the group reaches Mirador, Nate realizes the trip is a mistake. That evening, Sarah tangles with the leader of a parliamentary group, triggering events that lead Nate to a secret rebel camp deep in the jungle, where unforgiving tests and a newfound sense of purpose challenge everything he believes about himself as a husband, lover, fighter, and man.
