The surgeon's family
A saga of love and survival
by David Hernandez and Carole Gift Page
The Peralta and Hernandez families both immigrated illegally to the US from Mexico in the 1930's and lived in difficult circumstances for many years. Eventually, Margarita Peralta got saved and met and married Jose Hernandez Jr., who had also become a Christian. They started their life together with nothing but a determination that their children would have a good education and the opportunities they had never had. Their son, David, became a well-known surgeon.
I really enjoyed this intriguing true story.
