Day of the Moon, The by Graciela Limón

In The Day of the Moon, novelist Graciela Limon tells a dramatic story of forbidden loves. This is a tale that spans across the twentieth century, across the Southwest from Mexico to Los Angeles, across skin colors, across life and death, and across four generations of a family named Betancourt. Among its members are Don Flavio, who believes that chance may win one a fortune, but only ruthlessness can hold onto it . . . His secretive sister, Brigida . . . And his beautiful, golden-haired daughter, Isadora, who refuses to submit to her father’s dictates, however terrible the cost may prove to her and to everyone around her. - See more at:
