Carol Freire, an American/Brazilian writer based in the San Francisco Bay Area, is debuting her book “Além das Fronteiras" ("Beyond Borders"), a novel in Portuguese, published in the U.S. and aimed at the Brazilian community abroad.
Covering topics such as multiculturalism and cultural identity in a globalized world, the book is a reflection on the intrinsic feelings of every immigrant: to live among two or more cultures, without belonging to any in particular. That is the case of Luna, the protagonist who moves through three of theses different cultures: the Brazilian, American and Chinese, living the tragedies and joys of an immigrant. Mixing fiction with real events, the book serves as a reflection tool for Brazilian immigrants, helping them deal with the complexities of life beyond their borders.
In a compelling narrative, Carol combines the fast-paced style of American narrative with Brazilian’s literature creativity. Mixing fiction with real life, the book will entertain and inspire those women who try to balance family and career.
