What readers are saying about

America Libre…

"Populated with unforgettable characters, this book will haunt me for a long time to come."
Beverly J. Rowe - MyShelf.com

"America Libre by Raul Ramos y Sanchez introduced me to an amazing new author. What a surprising book! I thought this was never going to be "my kind of book". I read lots of genres but this seemed too military/warlike/history for me. Was I wrong!"
Karen Haney

"Let me tell you what... It's well written. It's believable. It's touching. It's fast moving. It's thought provoking. It's scary. It's one of the best books I've ever read!"
Elizabeth T. Neas

"This is the kind of book that jumps alive in your hands. It whispers to you of love and compassion, and shrieks at you from the depths of hatred and confusion."
Sarah Templeton

"Mano is a very appealing mix of strength, intelligence, and most importantly, a family man of unwavering moral commitment."
Toni Laricchiuta

"It has been a long time since a book can move a person to think, get angry, or, feel empathy with the characters. This is one novel that does all three."

What readers are saying about

House Divided...

"Powerful. Realistic. Terrifying. Thrilling. Spellbinding."
Latina Book Club

"Exciting. Thought-provoking. House Divided really pulls at this readers heart strings. Book Clubs will find the questions in the Reading Group Guide to be useful for initiating discussions."
Sophin Zoe Pruong McCreery

"This is not the type of book I usually read (my attention usually strays at the first sign of military jargon), so I was surprised how quickly I became absorbed into the story; I could not put the book down. "
The Feminist Texican

"From a woman's perspective, I especially liked Rosa's relationship with Celia, a local curandera (faith healer); but I don't want to spoil this engaging novel for you by giving away the good parts. Just put this one on your "must read" list."
Rose A. Valenta

"I can't wait for my friends to finish the book so we can talk about it!"
Diane Dolan

"The setting and plot were very gripping, and I had a hard time putting the book down, even when it was finished. Already, I can't wait for the next one!."
Donna Haller Pitstick
