Staff Pick

Rain of Gold is an engrossing read that's full of tales both tall and true. Villaseñor has a way of getting to one's heart through the stories of his ancestors and the journey that leads to his parents meeting. The sequel, Thirteen Senses, is equally moving.

Publisher Comments:

In Rain of Gold, Victor Villasenor weaves the parallel stories of two families and two countries…bringing us the timeless romance between the volatile bootlegger who would become his father and the beautiful Lupe, his mother-men and women in whose lives the real and the fantastical exist side by side…and in whose hearts the spirit to survive is fueled by a familys unconditional love.

Economic times are hard right now. This book will give you a wonderful new way to look at the world when things feel bleak. The characters will fill you with light and joy. I really loved this book. You will too. Pick it up and find a fresh start. It will make your day!

This book is a life changing experience...I grew from the knowledge i gained through the characters and i am who i am due to what lupe has taught me. Also salvador is the every women dreams of and well i could not stop thinking of either of them once i finished the novel.I ran to the library and pickED up THIRTEEN SENSES,AND I FINISHED IT TOO;now i am going to begin reading Wild steps of heaven. THANK YOU LUPE,SALVADOR AND VICTOR who are amazing and i grew to love your parents through these novels.
