The Sentiments of A Woman, is a story of the American Dream, which recounts the struggle and final triumph of Isabel Rivera, the subject of this intimate novel. Chapter by chapter we travel through her life, from trauma to triumph, as she recounts the extraordinary adventures, famous personalities met along the way, sacrifices endured, and the anecdotes of economic depression, World War II, and obstacles overcome, from childhood to maturity, to reach her destination: America. Changing times and fortunes forced her to move, and she wandered, From Mexico to California before settling down in this land of "golden dreams." A true story based on private memoirs and personal recollections. The sentiments of a Woman, Part II of BOUND FOR THE PROMISED LAND, will chronicle the personal feelings and experiences of my mother---representing the other side of the story, which began with Trials of Manhood. Both novels begin with their parents and how they met, before 1920 in both cases, and continue and conclude with all that they lived and experienced, through revolutions, economic depressions, World War, Modernity and passing fashions, social changes, immigration, struggle, and achieving their American dream by 1960. The books conclude with an epilogue of what life has taught them, and how they see the world as senior citizens, compared to the convictions they clung to as youths.
