Overview

Sebastián, though fiercely devoted to his family, has left his father's farm in the mountains of Adjuntas, Puerto Rico. Settling in the bustling seaside town of Ponce in 1870, he embarks on a new career as a carpenter and is ready to embrace the cultural differences and new experiences to be found. Part of his adventure involves a young woman who looks and acts differently from the country girls he has always known. Will his new friends and new life mesh with his family back home and their lifestyle? In the process of this change, Sebastián must come to terms with his beliefs, his self-image, and his hopes for the future and a family of his own.

Sebastián is the continuing story of the Torres family which began with Luisa. Based on true-life ancestors in the author's family tree, Sebastián will continue to enlighten readers about the history and traditions of Puerto Rico during the latter part of the 19th century. Readers vividly feel what it was like to live day-to-day in that era, along with the cultural elements that make this tropical Caribbean Island so unique. Those who fell in love with Sebastián's sister, Luisa, will be equally drawn to this likeable young man and his inspiring story.
