Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"What a loving and sweet study is The Courtship of María Rivera Peña . Every page you can imagine on the screen, lit beautifully and acted as well as the story was written. Daniel A. Olivas writes with the confidence and grace of a village storyteller entrusted to keep the stories alive. We are taken step by step through the history of a marriage, a relationship and a way living unknown to most. This is a story that deserves your attention." Chris Mansel, The Muse Apprentice Guild
