The Ordinary Life: Ordinary lives. Extraordinary people.

Mario Kiefer (Author)


A work of literary fiction based on true events that follows the lives of three ordinary people: Born into a migrant family, Lucia worked the fields and witnessed first-hand hardship and abuse. When she moved into the rancher's home, she met and later married his son. After all, white men don't beat their wives. How was she to know? Blinded by the love he had for his father, Julian, didn't see the abuse. When his mother took him away, he felt unwanted and unloved; jealous of a younger brother who seemed to be the golden child. Until that day in September, 2001, when the hidden hand that moved them on their journey was finally laid to bare. Mateo's own issues were unknown and unseen by most as he struggled to grow from boy to man. The events of his past always got in the way of his journey. If ever he was to traverse his future, he had to first learn to move beyond his past.
