Victor Villaseñor creates a powerful, moving protrait of his father's family - the Villaseñors - who in their courage and love of life represent the whole passionate history of Mexico.

An epic portrait of Mexico is painted as this spellbinding story of madness and miracles, rage and redemption, unfolds.

Margarita...wild of heart and powerful in her earthborn mystery is the indomitable Indian matriarch who guards her family and conquers her enemies with the cutting edge of unconditional love - and a touch of magic. As a young woman, she was swept away by Juan Jesus Villaseñor, a powerful arrogant man who carried the blood of Spanish royalty in his veins - and who, unarmed, once wrestled with the great serpent that held his village hostage - and won.

Together, Don Juan and Dona Margarita would create a dynasty on the eve of the Mexican Revolution. Their daughters...Emilia and Luisa, beautiful, sensuous, mysterious, who find courage and endurance in their mother's faith, and searing, explosive passion amid the turmoil of war. Their sons...Jose, who becomes a legendary horseman and a hero of the revolution. And Juan, the youngest, Victor Villaseñor's father, through whose eyes this brilliant, tumultuous saga unfolds.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Silva | 11/12/2013

    " I really did like the book. They only thing I would change are all the small details that make the book drag a little, but I guess that's the style of this author. Overall, I truly enjoyed reading this book, and I look foward to reading more material from this autor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 11/5/2013

    " A beautifully woven mystical coming of age story in the times of the Mexican Revolution. ...I am enjoying the read and find myself savoring lines in the book that are worth holding on to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 11/3/2013

    " Not as impressive as his other books, but fun to read - VERY interesting portrayal of Mexican families in the early 1900s. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Book Concierge | 7/16/2013

    " Villasenor continues the sage of his family, this time focusing on his father's family. This book has LOTS more Mexican allegory and saints' stories than his earlier work. Not quite the same impact as "Rain of Gold." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 5/10/2013

    " I love this whole series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 12/2/2012

    " A equally as powerful sequel, to Rain of Gold. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 7/13/2012

    " A really enjoyed this tale of mystical realism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 1/10/2012

    " Beautiful, but sometimes hard to read book about people who lived not too far from my grandmother's ancestral homeland. Lesson to learn from this: can't we all just get along?!? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcy | 3/24/2011

    " This book is an easy read, like rain of gold. This story is about the same family but it focuses on the discrimination within the family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moe | 10/26/2010

    " This is a memoir from one of my favorite authors. The story was good but I have to say that too many "little details" in the book were dragged on and on and on, not to mention repetitive. Otherwise, the story ended with me the reader wanting to know more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 8/13/2010

    " It was a good book but for me it was just more of Rain of Gold so I dont know that you would need to read both books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denis | 6/16/2010

    " A memoir of Mexico and a family history that reads like a novel. A great read, written with panache and tenderness, filled with over-the-top characters and drama. A fascinating introduction to Mexican culture and history through a true saga. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daisy | 6/9/2010

    " I have not been able to stop reading this since Desiree recommended it to me. I never laughed and cried so much. A truly beautiful tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanish | 6/2/2010

    " possibly even better than it's partner: rain of gold. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hemingway_ | 4/4/2010

    " Wonderfully told story.. The magical realism is self-evident along with the juxtaposition of religiosity and loves madness.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 3/21/2010

    " I just finished this book. I think it is a great intro to the works of Victor Villasenor. After this one, you might be hooked! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joaquin | 2/1/2010

    " Rain of Gold is the story about the fathers side of this family history and Wild Steps of Heaven was about the mothers. I loved both, but I enjoyed this one more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 1/18/2010

    " I read this book my freshmen year and I'm glad I did. The book is full of love, magic and family. Victor Villasenor did an excellent job with this book. "
