In this true testimony of faith, love, and hope, Riascos, a Colombian HIV-positive businessman, tells readers how the disease has affected his life and that of his HIV-positive wife, Margarita, and daughter, Lucinda. In honest and emotive prose, Riascos remembers the difficult ordeal of breaking the news to family and friends in a society that discriminates against HIV-positive people; searching for experimental or illegal treatments to extend the life of his young daughter; and coping with Margarita's eventual death. Readers will be inspired by the author's strength and courage, and by his ability to support his family as he fights the virus. With the help of his new wife, an old girlfriend who accepted him and Lucinda despite their condition, Riascos became an HIV/AIDS activist, founding a support organization for parents of HIV-positive children. Although at times he expresses guilt and frustration for passing the virus to his family, Riascos maintains an extremely positive tone, acknowledging the love and moral support that he has received from family and friends while dispelling the image of hopelessness and gloom often associated with the disease. Already a best seller in Colombia, this inspiring story is highly recommended for bookstores and public libraries. -Bernadette Lopez-Fitzsimmons, Manhattan Coll.
