About the book:

Angelica Amante is facing the toughest decision of her life. Should she accept a promotion at a prominent New York law firm or follow her heart and risk her entire career?

Angelica Amante is the only daughter of a wealthy horse-ranching family and a rising legal star of a prominent New York law firm. But when shes offered a promotion, she finds herself facing one of the toughest decisions of her life. Should she continue to work for a company that profits by taking advantage of the poor, or take a stand against injustice and risk her career? Then Angelica meets Antonio Perez, the oldest son of a poverty-stricken family in Guadalajara, Mexico, and her compassion for the poor is reawakened. When Angelica and Antonios worlds collide, they find themselves at a crossroad of faith, love, and selfless commitment that will forever alter their lives. The Winds of Sonoma, book 1 in the Regalo Grande series, is a must-read for anyone whose heart is captivated by selfless love, compassion, and truth.


My review:

I read this book back in Sept 2005 and here is my review from way back then...

I read many books that I never post, but this one is a must read for romance lovers. The author did an amazing job at making the reader fall in love with the hero and empathize with his plight. The conflict was excellent and I couldn't stop reading this story until I found out how they made it past all of the cultural barriers to find true love. Since it is based on a true story, you can feel the author's passion about the subject matter, but not in a preachy way. I laughed and I cried. I saw everything through the perspective of the characters, who were realistic, and very well developed. The symbolism throughout the story is also wonderful. I literally felt the hero's love pouring from his eyes whenever he looked at Angelica. Well done!

Cindi - I'll get this out right away. And for all of you who said you like novels based on true stories and moral dilemmas, you'll find both ingredients in As I Have Loved You.

Actually, all my books have moral dilemmas. In the Shade of the Jacaranda is about an unplanned pregnancy, and The Fragrance of Roses is about a child with cancer and the search for a blood match.

They all confirm that God's ways are mysterious and beautiful

Blessings. Nikki
