Carol Freire, an American/Brazilian writer based in the San Francisco Bay Area, is debuting her bookAlém 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.

Published by the American Cultural Exchange Books, the book can be purchased through Amazon and major bookstores in the U.S., Britain, Canada and Australia.
