SNEAK PREVIEW: HOUSE DIVIDED by Raul Ramos
Last November, we featured author Raul Ramos y Sanchez and his book AMERICA LIBRE.
I found the book in turns, passionate, vivid, and terrifying. It was a totally engrossing and emotional tale about Hispanics in search of justice and a country of their own. Unfortunately, the rebels’ quest leads to the imprisonment of all Latinos in Quarantine Zones. At the end, the battle is lost and the rebels jailed along with all the other Hispanics in the U.S.
BUT THE BATTLE CONTINUES…. Manolo Suarez is back and still fighting. But now, trouble comes from the home front as his teenage son joins the battle but on the side of extremists attacking innocent civilians. Is this what Manolo fought so hard for -- to lose his son? Is this the lesson his struggles taught his children? his people?
Here is a sneak peek at the sequel: HOUSE DIVIDED.
COMMENT: Do let us know what you think of the books.
