Daughter of Spain is not a woman, but a place… a place in the new world called New Spain. As I read this romantic tale of a woman’s heroic maturing from a naïve, indulged child to noblewoman, I couldn’t help but envision Johnnie Depp’s character in Chocolate, cast as Don Carlos Rodrigo Fresquez. Multi-published author, Jeannine D. Van Eperen, has a way of putting the reader into the heart and soul of her characters. This is definitely a must read, as well as a keeper to be read again and again.
