MEXICAN TIME by Eoe Lund Schiller


Email this review


Intelligently emotional women's novel, which has considerable attraction. Even contrasts, conflicts, and a smooth touch for the story of Hilary, Los Angeles carearist, widowed at 34, who goes down to the lazy primitive Mexican village of LaFloreada, partly as a vacation, but partly to survey the possibilities of opening a casino there. She stays on the ranch of proud, handsome Armando Santyana, who is more than ""just a Mexican"". She fights his attraction for her, afraid it is a case of ""Mexican time"", and aware that he does not want a passing affair. Eventually, she gives way to her passions, and when she finds she is pregnant, is forced to make the decision between the two civilizations, and chooses his.
