Item description for Carolina by Jean Day...

Carolina is a young woman, beautiful and determined, of Spanish and French descent, living in Mexico during the Revolution. Politics plays a decisive role in her life and her family, but it is love that will direct the course of Carolina's life. Love, that manifests itself in many forms - filial, maternal and, especially, romantic - gives meaning to life in a world that can be cruel and unjust.

Carolina finds herself in situations that appear to offer no way out. Her inner strength, and the abundant love integral to her character are tested to the very limit, but are not conquered easily. Her destiny carries her from her birthplace to Mexico City and finally, to Los Angeles, California. After so many experiences, so much disillusionment, and so much sadness: will she ever capture the happiness and peace that she longs for?

Reviews - What do customers think about Carolina?

Carolina leaves you hungry for more  Oct 17, 2003
Carolina is a very real recount of the things that were so important for the higher and middle classes in Mexico, at the begining of the XX century.
Carolina's insights show you a very coragous woman in a time when woman needs were very much neglected, by men and even by themselves.
If something it leaves you wanting more: more details; more facts; and more about what else went on her mind.
I think Jean Day should write another book, and I congratulate her on her first and I hope not last novel.
Carolina Better for You than Water for Chocolate  Oct 3, 2003
There's a ring of truth about Jean Day's fascinating historical novel of a middle-class young woman swept up into the vast movement of the Mexican Revolution. The story concerns passionate love and love betrayed, and what a person of character like Carolina,the heroine, does (must do) to hold her life together when, as it seems, everything she counted on has fallen down around her.

There is nothing showy here, but CAROLINA is not a quiet book either. It breathes with excitement and the incredible sweep of the historical period it chronicles. Carolina moves through the beautifully-textured world of early 20th century Mexico at first romantically and increasingly as a realist--but one true to her ideals.

I read this book in a single sitting. It has stayed with me as only an honest story beautifully told can.

"Mucho Amor".  Sep 29, 2003
This is a sweet little Book; shocking beginning, intricate middle and romantic finale.
Carolina; "mucho problema, "mucho amor". A must for ladies who think that love is, "Gone with the Wind".
Excelent  Sep 24, 2003
