Ten years ago I started a personal new journey. A journey to discover my roots and to write a story inspired by my family and the strong women who influenced me.
I began writing my first book, in what is to be the trilogy, Songs of the Boricua. The trilogy is named after a famous Puerto Rican song "Lamento Borinquen," a lament of the Boricua—a song about the joys and tears of the Puerto Rican struggle. Boricua represents the spirit of the Taíno, the heart of Puerto Rico.
My first book, Song of the Boricua, began with the story of three generations of women.
Elena: resilient and ambitious, Maria: passionate and headstrong, and Josephina: optimistic and romantic. It also tells the story of Puerto Rico. Like Puerto Rico, these women are held hostage, unfulfilled and unable to find their happiness.
Daughter of the Boricua is the continuation of this story and the bloodline from the first book.
Liani, a Taíno torn between love and family, Isabella; cursed direct descendent of Aztec princess Isabella Moctezuma and Hernán Cortés, and Josephine; daughter of Isabella, afraid to love, but finding herself caught between love and career.
This time the stakes are even higher as they battle the centuries old curse and fight for love of family and themselves. Will they triumph or die in the storm of the century?
Daughter of the Boricua is now available on Amazon.
