What Doesn't Break Us

What Doesn't Break Us

by Sonia Rodriguez




Soon Celia was aboard a cargo plane. She is one of twenty-two young women that had been chosen for the immigration project. Celia had never flown before. She realized she had been afraid...

Against a backdrop of Puerto Rico in the 1940s, What Doesn't Break Us follows Celia and Nando on a path from their homeland to a new life in the United States.

The story incorporates an understanding of certain historical and sociological principals, while frequently emphasizing belief as a means by which one might overcome even the most daunting of perceived obstacles.

With ten extra dollars that he had originally refused, Antonio would lead Nando and Guillermo to a hiding place aboard the ship.

And if all went well, they wouldn't be discovered.

What Doesn't Break Us touches upon qualities relating to identity, determination, and various incarnations of love. The story moves to illustrate the types of challenges the process of immigration may have included at the time.

Designed to entertain as well as to inspire, the piece explores the capacity of the human spirit.
