A Story by barleygirl

Undoubtedly the best I've ever gotten!

"
Thanks to a dear friend for this amazing review of Paraiso Perdido!

I absolutely could not stop reading this mystical/magical carpet ride of a passionate love story! It was an awesome escape from the burdensome reality of each day during this difficult summer. I got totally lost in the author’s richly detailed and authentic style of period writing. Took me back to the sunny, carefree California of the 70s, with a sassy “hippy” protagonist who cavorts into communal living on an idyllic, rustic hot-springs resort with the two loves of her life and a cast of colorful “psychedelic” characters. Such mind-blowing criss-crossing of storylines. I was immersed in all the lows and highs (literally), and plot twists of this story, ranging from love to tragedy and back. I felt like I was a part of this lusty “tribe” of free-thinking friends all the way through. You will absolutely love this sequel to the first Paraiso Escondido book, and you will never, never forget the untamable firebrand, Meg. You will not regret this purchase and you will greatly enjoy the read. Peace out!

Margie... I owe it to myself to read both Novels.
I have never ordered from Amazon. However,
where we live, we have Barnes and Noble, as well as
Books a Million... where I can order your Novels through them.
They may have just opened again, since the Pandemic.
I know you are gifted... and like so many people...
are like an Angel flying too close to the ground.
We just had two Rain Storms yesterday with thunder and lightening...
it poured Heavenly Rain. I think of words like
"For every drop of Rain... a Baby smiles." Tomorrow I will visit
one of the above Bookstores, and see if they can locate The Novels of
Margie Willis. gently, Pat
