New Review for Librarians on AuthorBuzz

THE ROAD FROM LA CUEVA, a 2008 New Mexico Book Award winner, is charged with emotion and sensuality, and is a book many women relate to. If you enjoyed The Beans of Egypt Maine, you'll enjoy this book as well.

Midwest Book Review recommends it highly to romance fans: 'Ana must overcome these problems and somehow find a resolution – deftly told by Sheila Ortego'. Miriam Sagan, author of Searching for a Mustard Seed, says: 'Rooted in the land, in women's friendship, and in the mother-daughter bond...this novel has a lot of heart.' Front Street Reviews says: 'The author of this book deserves the best of reviews for this touching, heart melting story that could be of any one of our lives.'

I'd be delighted to talk to book groups, and to do readings in New Mexico.

Happy Reading,
Sheila Ortego
