The Winds of Sonoma (Book 1 of 3)

Angelica Amante, a New York lawyer, faces the most important choice of her career. Should she side with her firm and sanction the exploitation of illegal immigrants or stand against injustice? When she meets Antonio Perez, son of a poverty-stricken Mexican family, on her wealthy parents Arabian horse ranch her compassion for the poor grows. Then coinciding circumstances and conflicting lifestyles cause their worlds to collide, Angelica and Antonio find themselves at a crossroad of faith, love, and selfless commitment that will forever alter both their lives.

This book won the 2006 American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year for Women’s Fiction and was chosen One of the Top 20 Best Books of 2005.

In the Shade of the Jacaranda (Book 2 of 3)

Angelica Amante Perez married Antonio, the man of her heart, an impoverished, illiterate Mexican, much to her wealthy and well-positioned parents’ disappointment. Now, after a year of marriage, she works at a high-pressure job as a public defender, with a modest salary, while trying to be a supportive partner of her husband’s fledgling business. She is barely keeping her head above water when she finds out she is expecting a child.

As Angelica struggles to keep her marriage and her life together, she becomes uneasy about the health of her unborn child, concerned about the toll weeks of morning sickness and long hours on an important legal case are taking. Then a terrible accident occurs, ending her life as she has known it. She wonders if God is still in control. How can the chaos that surrounds her be transformed into hope and a future?

This book won the 2007 Excellence in Media Silver Angel Award

The Fragrance of Roses (Book 3 of 3)

When Angelica, the brilliant and successful daughter of the wealthy Amante family, married Antonio, a poor, illiterate, stable hand, she had no idea of the struggles that lay before them. But now, ten years later, they are more deeply in love than ever and looking forward to raising their two children and building a future.

Then tragedy strikes a devastating blow and her child’s life hangs in the balance, bringing into question everything they have ever believed. With waning faith and little hope they walk through the valley of the shadow of death. The journey leads deep into Mexico. Suffocating with fear and powerless to stop the downward spiral of their lives, God reveals His truth.

This book won the 2007 American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year for Women’s Fiction
