Rating: 4 stars  Livin' La Vida Latina
Review: Bella Rodriguez is a young girl trapped beneath the stringent confines of her controlling and abusive stepfather. But what made living with him worse were his gang and drug affiliations. That wasn't a life for her. "Home could not be a prison where strange men gathered in the kitchen, waiting with clenched fists and narrowed eyes." (10) A voracious reader, Bella longed to travel to foreign places. "Instead, she was like a caged animal, peering out in quick glimpses, seeking recognition in the faces she saw." (11)
With her mother and older sister gone, her only hope was to escape his clutches and start fresh. "Bella thought  it was the best time to begin a new life away from Manuel and Manny. She feared that, if she stayed until graduation, an arrangement would be made. Bella did not know what it would be, but she suspected it would happen like it had with Rosalinda: a disappearance and no further contact." (21)
So, with nothing but a backpack and her mother's bright shawl, she hits the road, never looking back. The reader follows Bella on a fretful journey, battling loneliness and fear, through the dark trails of the unknown.  That niggling concern that her stepfather would come looking for her weighed on her because, even without his foreboding presence, "he was the barrier between her future and her freedom." (36) The fact of the matter was that he had pre-arranged for Bella to be "sold" to marriage, and, if he didn't get her back to fulfill that arrangement, he would be out a lot of money.
Passing through town, Bella meets Gina, a "distracted psychic," who believes Bella's impromptu arrival was a charted destiny.
Story is a dramatic tale of strength and adversity. It's a beacon of dreams for those with the courage to go after them.
Well-written and captivating.

From the Author

The Bright Shawl was inspired by my work as a social worker with teenage runaways. Many of them knew what they were running from, but had no idea what they were running to. So, in a way, this is a fantasy of what it might be like to script the perfect scenario. I combined that with my fondness for the Boho/Hippie fashion trends of the late '60's and today. I had to have Gina, the distracted psychic. I have had so many Gina's in my life and they always amaze me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Family drama & fashion. Loved it!
By S. Click on August 22, 2016
Loved this story, I could picture everything Phyllis described, I need to add some boho embroidered clothing and chunky turquoise jewelry to my wardrobe ASAP! Wish I could walk into BellaRosa on The Strand and grab a blouse, ring, and some shower gel!
Another great read, addicting story, and relatable characters from my favorite author!
I wish the book wouldn't have gone so fast, I hate it when they end...
I stayed up pretty late to finish this one!
