Lucia Robson picked me up and plopped me smack down in the middle of the Mexican Revolution. Though I thought I knew about that time period, her characters brought it to life in a way ONLY Robson can. Grace and Rico, two of her central characters, provided a steady train track for the story that evolved, and a link to both revolutionaries (familiar and lesser known) and el gobierno, the government the revolutionaries stood against. Usually, I dislike love stories of any kind, but in the book, we had two very different love stories, both conducive to the story; both wonderful. Angel and Antonio - young members of the revolution - gave us excitement, an 'inside' to the workings of those who were fighting, and humor. Grace and Rico gave us the heart of the story, and will steal a reader's heart. I learned so much about Zapata (because the book compelled me to go and read MORE) and about the area in which the story took place. By the end of the book, I found myself SO caught up in the story, I almost needed to go wash away the dirt and grime of the battles! And the ending? It will leave you breathless. I am a huge fan of Lucia St. Claire Robson's writing. She researches so thoroughly, a reader feels every place about which she writes. Her characters are pertinent - never just 'tossed in' for show - and the reader becomes invested in their lives and outcomes. If you think history isn't interesting, read LAST TRAIN FROM CUERNAVACA - or, for that matter, ANY book by Ms. Robson. You'll change your mind FAST! I'd buy my train ticket right now if I were you! Get on board!
