Do you love historical fiction/romance?

As you know, I love to write in different genres to shake things up a bit. That is why I decided to write this historical fiction/romance. I enjoy writing something completely different from time to time.

Lubelia Alycea leaves her native country of Madeira, Portugal to travel to her new home – America.

This is the story of how a strong, resilient young girl grows into a formidable woman. She must survive many tragedies in her lifetime, separation from family, sickness, death, betrayal, and a lost love. Will she find happiness and a new love in her life?

Will she be strong enough to face the storms ahead and still keep her family together? Will the secrets in her life destroy her and all that she holds dear?

This book was dedicated and in memory of my grandmother who lived to be 100 years old. It is purely fiction but I think my grandmother would have loved how I embellished this woman’s life to create this story.

Here is a book trailer I created.

Here are some reviews from Amazon using promos.

If you haven’t read this book but love historical fiction/romance, then you must check out this book today. I’m sure that you will feel as if you were traveling along with Lubelia through all her trials and tribulations from one country to another, for you will feel her joys, sorrows and cry and laugh along with her. She is an unforgettable and formidable woman with an amazing story to share.
