In 1914, a troubled new mother makes the heartbreaking decision to abandon her baby to an orphanage in Spain. Vicenta is taken in by nuns who successfully find her a christian home with a loving mother and father in the beautiful southern fishing villa of Rota. Rota offers a tranquil, rural life away from the tumultuous life of the city. The sun, sound of the seagulls and the lull of the ocean waves lure you into an effortless state of relaxation. Vicenta's wealthy parents raise her in a paradise where the white houses are adorned with colorful flowers pots hanging from the windows. Life is ideal until tragedy strikes the family sending Vicenta's mother into a debilitating depression. Vicenta perseveres with the help of a loving nanny and her friend, ABC, who is her anchor in life. Vicenta finds love and romance, but it doesn't come without tragic consequences. Throughout her troubled life, she relies on her sense of humor, faith, love and friends to get her through tough times; all the while, in the shadow of her mind, wondering about her birth mother.
About the Author
Carolina P. McMullen was born in Rota, Spain, but now calls Charleston, South Carolina home. She is a bilingual writer as well as the creator of soon to be published children stories and their illustrations. Married to her husband for over 25 years, she enjoys travelling and has four chihuahuas as well as two grown children. Vicenta de Paul is her first novel in a trilogy entitled 'Not Here To Stay'. These fictional books were inspired by the many stories her grandmother told her when she was a young girl. Her grandmother's love for reading and storytelling were responsible for the growth of Carolina's curiosity leading her to the fascinating world of words.
