Liliana is just a 13 year old typical teen when her American mother is murdered in front of her. With no other relatives–save for one aunt who has 6 children of her own and lives in poverty, she is forced to go to Columbia and live with a father she hasn’t seen since she was 3 years old.
The character building and world building are excellent. My heart broke for Liliana when her life came crashing down around her. I rooted for her. I was happy for her when she finally found a friend in her new employer. I despised her father. The cast of supporting characters all elicited emotional responses from me.
It’s first in a series and I look forward to reading more.
Neva Squires-Rodriguez earned her Bachelors Degree from American Military University (APUS/AMU) and her Masters Degree from National University, a feat which she worked very hard to obtain and says she will work even harder to pay off.
She claims to be a typical American, full of dreams that will hopefully get her to a more comfortable lifestyle one day. She says, “God has a plan and I will follow wherever it is that He takes me.”
