Price: $4.99
Set in Mexico during the Mexican Revolution, two young adventuresome American couples united by kinship move to a remote sugar hacienda in southern Mexico lured by cheap land, leisure and the prospect of untold wealth. In addition to family discord, fate throws them more than one cruel twist; a locust plague, immovable squatters, malaria and the ever-encroaching factions of war. The plot thickens when the family leader, Jerome Mahoney, abandons his family in their dangerous surroundings by contacting and selling guns to the very revolutionary factions that threaten their lives. The family must decide to wait for his return or escape the tyranny without him. This fictionalized story is based on one hundred letters sent home to the family matriarch in Haverhill, Massachusetts where they were saved and passed down to the next generation of readers. Once the letters divulged the lure of Mexico from the yellowed envelopes with broken seals, the story begged to be told.
