Faced with a vendetta after her husband is murdered, Rose has to find a way to immigrate to America. What turns out is another type of brutality that has the young family suffering physical abuse. When he can no longer stand the fear and beating, the older son runs away and finds himself in a new and different culture. Eventually the younger brother also leaves to seek his way to become an American. Both have joined the Army in 1917 in the American involvement in the war in Europe. The older boy discovers the friendship of another immigrant, this one from Ireland, and eventually all three men arrive in France at one of the changing point battles of the war. Not all of the men come home. The Immigrante is a story of undying love, sacrifice and courage-from trying to find a way to escape the sometimes-horrible lives of our four people to the honor and sacrifice of everyone in the story as they seek to become Americans, despite the sometimes-difficult wandering to reach that goal. Anyone reading The Immigrante, with relatives that have come to America, will find the characters just like those in their own family.
