Once they had a country, a culture, a future. Today, upheaval and betrayal have turned their world upside down. And for one family-a U.S. war hero, his deeply religious wife, and their impressionable fourteen-year-old son-a new struggle has just begun.

Mano Suarez made a choice to fight against injustice, and his wife can only pray for his deliverance. Now their son, Pedro, takes up his father’s cause . . . disappearing into the ranks of a cult-like organization and leaving his family far behind. To rescue him, Mano must face the consequences of his past deeds. But how can he convince his son to give up the very ideals he, Mano, embraced? How can he prove that home and family are the most important ideals of all?

House Divided


  • "With House Divided, Ramos continues to shape the immigration narrative, while simultaneously holding it down for other authors who are part of fiction's Latino Renaissance...Just as he did in America Libre, Ramos infuses House Divided with an unwavering voice - one well informed by the fear that the immigration reform smack downs in this country have engendered."
  • "In such explosive times as ours, it is rare to discover a novel that captures fanaticism in all its extremes and tells a story as thrilling and vibrant as Raul Ramos y Sanchez's AMERICA LIBRE. Future and history collide in a cautionary tale of a new Civil War on American soil. A must-read for all, no matter where you draw your line in the sand."
    James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle on AMERICA LIBRE
  • "Raul Ramos y Sanchez breaks new ground with America Libre. This debut novel is fast-paced and powerfully written-a story that not only entertains but challenges readers to examine their beliefs. Definitely an author to watch. "
    Reuben Martínez, founder, Librería Martínez Books & Art Gallery on AMERICA LIBRE
  • "A sweeping, intense novel of extremism, fear and consequences."
    Publishers Weekly on AMERICA LIBRE
  • "Provocative!"
  • "[Raul Ramos y Sanchez] Remember that name because you'll be hearing it time and time again. His next novel, House Divided, is scheduled to be published in 2011, and I for one, can't wait to read it." on AMERICA LIBRE

About the Author

House Divided is the second book of the America Libre trilogy, which Ramos began in 2004 with the input of scholars from the USA, Latin America, and Spain. Besides developing a documentary for public television, Two Americas: The Legacy of our Hemisphere, Raul writes for a variety of publications and hosts — an online forum for the U.S. immigrant community.
