5 Stars - Congratulations on your 5-star review! 
Reviewed By Lesley Jones for Readers' Favorite
In Song of the Boricua by Olivia Castillo, on the island of Puerto Rico in 1937, Elena has her sights set on getting an education, and joining the fight for the island's independence. She meets Ricardo, a successful rum producer, and soon marries him under pressure from her impoverished family. Her ambition for an education along with a happy marriage is shattered when Ricardo's dark nature becomes apparent. She follows Ricardo to New York to save her marriage, leaving her two daughters - Maria and Delia - behind in the care of a cruel guardian. When Elena returns and discovers the abuse of her children, the guardian places a curse on her and generations to follow. The story follows three generations of women as they try to find a life filled with happiness and true love while the dark shadow of the curse looms over them. Follow the lives of one family as they deal with the repercussions of making the wrong choices of destructive or loveless relationships and how these decisions will affect the generations that follow.

When I began reading Song of the Boricuta by Olivia Castillo, I thought that the number of characters and story line would be difficult to follow. I could not have been more wrong; the plot of this story was not only enthralling and engaging, but drew me into the world of this family. The author has created such a diverse cast of characters, each with their own strong personality. I didn't feel there were any villains in this story because you were allowed to see their backstory, and could understand why they acted in a certain way. I loved the lively spirit of Corinna especially, and the tortured soul of Isabella was heartbreaking. This is an amazing saga of family relationships and gives you an incredible sense of self-awareness of how your upbringing can affect the choices you make and your view of the world and others. I have been taken on an emotional roller coaster throughout this novel and the ending was heart wrenching but perfect.
