In The Shadow of God is fiction by an author who lives in our region, but it's fiction based on his life.
Samuel Nala met his wife, Justina, in her native Venezuela, and they've marveled at the changes in the country in the last few years.
Hugo Chavez had consolidated a lot of power, but he died of cancer two years ago, leaving Nicolas Maduro in charge.
Now Maduro is challenged by an opposition party controlling Venezuela's legislature, so the changes continue.
Samuel and Justina visit to talk about their impressions of the ongoing changes there.
