This decision could change her life forever. But how can Angelica choose between her career and her heart? As the rising star of a prominent law firm and the only daughter of a wealthy horse-ranching family, Angelica Amante has everything money could buy. Things can only get better for her. Or so she thought. When she's offered a promotion, Angelica is suddenly confronted with a life-changing decision. Should she continue to work for a company that profits by taking advantage of the poor, or take a stand against injustice and put her career in jeopardy? Then Angelica meets Antonio, a handsome and determined worker on her father's ranch. As she gets to know him, Angelica discovers that Antonio has left his poverty-stricken home in Guadalajara, Mexico, and illegally crossed the U.S. border to find work. Immediately Angelica's compassion is reawakened. Soon coinciding circumstances and conflicting lifestyles cause their worlds to collide, and Angelica and Antonio find themselves at a crossroad of faith, love, and selfless commitment that will forever alter both their lives.About the Author:
