Consequences of Passion
by Sol Diamante
Mexico’s chaotic political revolution turns the country into a place of turmoil and economic struggle. Angelica’s father, Miguel, is an ambitious man on the verge of losing everything. His strong desire to survive compels him to take a chance in America, the land of opportunity. With Miguel gone, Angelica’s mother, Caridad, gains responsibility of the household. Their lives are then changed forever when Adam, Angelica’s brother, is in an accident, causing her brother Eric to become rebellious and indifferent. After Miguel and Caridad’s deaths, Angelica is left with four younger siblings, including a crippled sister and a fugitive brother. While strengthened by her family’s hardships, Angelica is not satisfied with simply surviving, and she wills herself across the border to try to build a better future. Despite the uncertainties before her, Angelica desperately seeks a change, no matter what the consequences.
About the Author
I was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico and graduated from St. Michael’s High School. I then moved to Colorado to further my education and still reside there today. Because of my love for the arts, I took an interest in acting and did my first theatrical comedy in Spanish called “El Muerto Tendido” (A dead body lying at rest). I continued to act and did another play called “The Pesadilla” (The nightmare). To further my devotion to writing, I took classes at the University of Denver. I dedicate this book to my beloved mother born in Mexico.
