About this title:

Synopsis: In his critically acclaimed bestseller Rain of Gold, Victor Villase-or brought his mother's family vividly to life. In Wild Steps Of Heaven, he turns to his father's family, the Villase-ors. Against a vivid backdrop of love and war, magic and heroism, the author breathes life into his father's people--and in particular, the Villase-or women*Margarita, the indomitable matriarch who was swept away by Don Juan Jesus Villase-or on the eve of the Mexican revolution*their beautiful daughters, who find strength and endurance in their mother's faith, and searing passion amidst the turmoil of war. But it is little Juan, the youngest son, through whose eyes this tumultuous saga unfolds. Juan would learn from his brother Jose, a hero of the revolution, how to be a man; and from his beloved mother, how to live and love con gusto y amor.
A story of madness and miracles, rage and redemption, In Wild Steps Of Heaven creates a riveting portrait of an extraordinary family and the country whose earth gave them roots.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Publisher: Following brilliantly in the footsteps of the bestseller Rain of Gold, The Wild Steps Of Heaven is the second book in Victor Villasenor's moving saga of his own Mexican-American ancestry.

Hailed as "a Latino Roots" by Publishers Weekly, Rain of Gold was the story of Victor Villase-or's courageous mother, Lupe, her childhood in Mexico and her family's traumatic relocation to the United States during the Mexican Revolution. A national bestseller, this beautiful, touching true story received extraordinary acclaim, and has become a beloved classic.

The Wild Steps Of Heaven is the story of Juan Villasenor, Victor's father. Though young Juan watched the devastating effects of persecution and poverty on his once-noble Mexican family, two very special people helped him find meaning and hope in the chaos of life: his brave brother Jose who became a legendary military leader, and his courageous, spirited mother, who had a magical way of seeing the beauty in each new day.

As only he can, Victor Villasenor portrays a people who embrace life, la vida, and believe to the depths of their souls that love, family, and God will conquer all.
