Born to the Body
A powerful novel of desire and dilemma through the eyes of a young woman trapped by guilt and duty.
Milena’s days and nights are spent taking care of her aging mother and helping children who, like her, were born in prison. In fact, prison is all she has ever known. Against all better judgment, she has become quite attached to a young boy, Marlon, who is about to be separated from his mother. A chance meeting with a journalist covering the story complicates her delicate equilibrium and shows her a larger world, beyond prison walls.
