Book Review: Deepest Roots of the Heart

Deepest Roots of the Heart

Waterfall Press
Pub Date   Jan 20 2015

Avelino Aguilar served his country in World War 2 in 1945 he comes back to his families ancesteral home.  While at home Avelino meets a young woman named Amelia.  Avelino soon looks forward to spending time with Amelia even going on dates with her.  Avelino and Amelia face some issues of prejudice though, because some are not happy with a white girl falling in love with a Mexican.  

This novel holds a story within a story, because we have times when it flashes back from 1945 to the 1830's, making this novel even more interesting. 

Avelino finds himself facing risks even away from war, his life is in danger because of the Prejudice against a Mexican man falling in love with a "White Woman".  Amelia feels guilty because of what they are being put through, but she cannot and will not deny her love.

Deepest Roots of the Heart is a love story, but it is so much more than that, it is a story of overcoming, of going against the world and doing what they are called to do, it is a story of finding love in unexpected love. If you are a fan of historical fiction and of romance you will love this story...

I give this novel five out of five stars... 

Happy Reading
