Book Description: 
When community leaders began to doubt Abel Mendoza, the law practice he had spent years building began to crumble. It was the 1960s and there was but a handful of Mexican lawyers in California. Abel had worked tirelessly to earn respect in the courts, avoiding any semblance of a personal life to achieve his goals. Now, his personal and professional lives had collided and he found himself being rejected by the community that had previously supported and admired him. His fears of inadequacy kindled, Abel began to question who he really was, what he did, and where he belonged. A desire to avoid these questions and the people who had provoked them sent this small-town lawyer on a trip to escape not only his community but his own self-doubts, and into a relationship that changed his life completely.

I rate this book 4 ****'s 

This book is a wide-opener

I loved to read books about immigrants and their lifestyles. It is because I am an immigrant myself. I want to learn about their failure and their success. This book is a wide-opener. 

This book is so intense to read. It is very informative and fun as well. Abel never gives up his dreams despite being ridiculed, insulted, and lied to. He never quits until he finally succeeds. I felt sorry for him at the same time my hats off to him.

A beautiful story about life and how life is not easy especially if you are a person in color. I enjoyed reading this story. Abel's persistent not giving up is remarkable. The ability he has to please a woman he loved is very true to other people. Love is so powerful only if it is real and being reciprocated. 

Life itself for Abel is about trials just like his job and he succeeds by losing and winning some. I enjoyed the author's writing and am looking forward to reading more.
