Featherstitch (a Filipino Immigrant's True Story)
"Featherstitch" is the personal account of an immigrant's experiences during her first five years in the United States. An English professor and literary writer in her native Philippines, Meriam Baniel Dela Cruz left her family behind in the quest for a better life, working as a secretary, office manager, babysitter, caregiver, volunteer, and housekeeper so she could stay in the country legally. Readers who are unfamiliar with the peculiar journey that America's adopted sons and daughters undergo will be fascinated by Meriam's tales of struggle, perseverance, and hope.
