About the Book

This historical Epic narrates the history of Mexico from the perspective of a modern Mexican woman. It's Novelized and being brought to you via leanpub, in the hope that it will become self-supporting and become a new way of relating the history of a country.

Mexico is an interesting first choice for a Lean publishing historical novel.

Using objective evidence and imagination, David brings these characters to life as they would have actually lived.

As every foreigner who has ever truly visited the country knows, to know Mexico is to love it. And its rich history deserves to be known in an easy to understand, entertaining form.
