Summary
In his critically acclaimed bestseller Rain of Gold, Victor Villase-or brought his mother's family vividly to life. In Wild Steps Of Heaven, he turns to his father's family, the Villase-ors. Against a vivid backdrop of love and war, magic and heroism, the author breathes life into his father's people—and in particular, the Villase-or women*Margarita, the indomitable matriarch who was swept away by Don Juan Jesus Villase-or on the eve of the Mexican revolution*their beautiful daughters, who find strength and endurance in their mother's faith, and searing passion amidst the turmoil of war. But it is little Juan, the youngest son, through whose eyes this tumultuous saga unfolds. Juan would learn from his brother Jose, a hero of the revolution, how to be a man; and from his beloved mother, how to live and love con gusto y amor.

A story of madness and miracles, rage and redemption, In Wild Steps Of Heaven creates a riveting portrait of an extraordinary family and the country whose earth gave them roots.

A magnificent book!!! Victor Villasenor weaves this incredible true story of his family so the reader not only feels like they are experiencing what is happening first hand, but leave one with a sense of awe for these strong and inspiring people. Family, tradition, injustice, courage are all found within these people. I can not say into words what a great book this is. The narration puts this book over the top.

As a fan of Victor Villasenor, I found this book as enjoyable to listen to as it was to read Reign of Gold. (And, 13 senses, which is my favorite of all his works). It is an intriguing story of family values, against adversity, unfairness, injustice while weaving it in with healthy doses of humor and wonder. The narration was incredible.
