Written by Victor Villaseñor, Audiobook narrated by Dick Hill.

Written by Victor Villaseñor, Audiobook narrated by Dick Hill. When Victor Villaseñor stood at the podium and looked at the group of teachers amassed before him, he became enraged. He had never spoken in public before. His mind was flooded with childhood memories filled with humiliation, misunderstanding, and abuse at the hands of his teachers.

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.

Wild Steps to Heaven was a real disappointment. I read Rain of Gold and Thirteen Senses and enjoyed the stories about the family and their hardships in making a life for themselves in a different society. The characters were well drawn. I couldn't help fall in love with every single one of them.
Wild Steps to Heaven goes back to the time when little Lupe wasn't born yet. Much was a rehash what already had been told in the other two books. But what really disappointed me was the poor characterization of the Villasenor children. It was very superficial. The dialogue was not persistent with the way of life in this poor mountainous area. I didn't even feel the desire to finish the book.

Amazon has never disappointed me -- I bought my Kindle only about 2 months ago and haven't gotten a good night's sleep since... I already had a sleep disorder and a reading addiction, and now, I'm not only reading but BROWSING all night! Wild Steps of Heaven was as wonderful as all the rest of Victor Villasenor's books and now I think I've read everything of his except "The Snow Goose..." and the screenplay "Ballad of Gregorio Cortez." Can't locate them yet. I'm working on a memoir and will probably try to self-publish it via Kindle. Thanks for a terrific service! The Kindle is truly revolutionary, and when I move to Ecuador I am sure it will save my sanity... Victor's books have already given me a lot of energy.

I have not had time to read this book yet, but I am looking forward to Christmas break so I have some leisure reading time! Loved Rain of Gold.
Powerful. I laughed and cried.
Victor is not only a great author but a wonderful, down to earth individual.
I had the pleasure of meeting and having dinner with him a few days after reading this book; he mentioned that this was the most emotional, and the hardest book for him to write.
