A Loving and Sweet Study Dec 25, 2003
"What a loving and sweet study is The Courtship of Maria Rivera Pena. Every page you can imagine on the screen, lit beautifully and acted as well as the story was written. Daniel A. Olivas writes with the confidence and grace of a village storyteller entrusted to keep the stories alive. We are taken step by step through the history of a marriage, a relationship and a way living unknown to most. This is a story that deserves your attention." -- Chris Mansel, The Muse Apprentice Guild
