Synopsis:

A daring memoir of love, magic, adventure, and miracles, Victor Villaseñor's Thirteen Senses continues the exhilarating family saga that began in the widely acclaimed bestseller Rain of Gold, delivering a stunning story of passion, family, and the forgotten mystical senses that stir within us all.

Thirteen Senses begins with the fiftieth wedding anniversary of the aging former bootlegger Salvador and his elegant wife, Lupe. When asked by a young priest to repeat the sacred ceremonial phrase "to honor and obey," Lupe surprises herself and says. "No, I will not say 'obey'. How dare you! You don't talk to me like this after fifty years of marriage and I now knowing what I know!" After the hilarious shock of Lupe's rejection of the ceremony, the Villaseñor family is forced to examine the love that Lupe and Salvador have shared for so many years — a universal, gut-honest love that will eventually energize and inspire the couple into old age.

Synopsis:

A daring memoir of love, magic, adventure, and miracles, this book continues the exhilarating family saga that began in the widely acclaimed bestseller "Rain of Gold." Villaseor brings readers into the Bonnie-and-Clyde-like world of his colorful, immigrant family. 8-page photo insert. Print features.
