Synopsis

Synopsis

Rain of Gold, the magical Mexican-American family  saga and critically acclaimed bestseller, is now  available for Spanish-speaking readers in  Lluvia De  Oro.

Rain of Gold is the captivating true  story of author Victor Villasenor's Mexican-American  family heritage and of the people who fled  war-torn Mexico at the turn of the century to find a  better life in the United  States.

This enchanting translation, Lluvia De  Oro, reveals the moving story of Villasenor's  mother, Lupe, whose family was forced to flee their  homeland during the Mexican Revolution, and how  despite this hardship, she met and fell in love with  the man who would become Villasenor's  father.

Lluvia De Orois a telling  narrative of Mexico's cultural richness, of a  family whose tragedies are endured through the power  of mysticism and unconditional love, and of all  immigrants: brave people who embrace life with an  unwavering spirit.
