'Look out! It's coming right at you, jump!' the screaming voice called out. Out of the corner of his eye, Polo suddenly saw it and jumped with every ounce of energy that he had, lifting both of his legs. But it wasn't fast enough or high enough. The cold, wet metal sliced through his right leg as he watched himself being hurtled through the unforgiving air. Landing in muddy gravel, Polo reached down to take hold of his throbbing leg, but much to his horror, it wasn't there. In an instant Polo's world vanished. He destroyed anyone and anything that stood in his way, including his wife. The lonely professor isolated himself, pushed her away, and Sara couldn't find her husband. He wasn't there. He wanted only darkness. In Lifting the Veil, S. S. Simpson unravels the cruelty of Polo's fate and how his Mexican-American barrio pride fueled his anger and resentment. Join Sara in discovering how light was brought back into Polo's life and what it was that finally caused the veil to lift.
