Why New Libri Press chose my book to publish
It "fits into the more literary genre," they said. "The U.S. has long dealt with immigrant issues, but despite the huge hispanic population in the U.S. we don't see enough of this type of dealing with your heritage, avoiding massive stereotypes of modern U.S.-Hispanic culture."
Raised in Chicagoís Latino working class community during the Sixties, Alicia Barron uncovers her motherís Caucasian roots when she inherits a time-worn mansion, the remnant of the estate of a Chicago industrialist who, she discovers, is her grandfather. Her search of the house takes her into the lives of past generations of women whose love carried them across forbidden boundaries, and into the conflict of class, nationality, and race that is the history of the city itself. The identity she finds there, however, leads to increasing conflict with her first great love, Ricardo Moreno, who wants Alicia to reject her gringo roots.
