Set in Washington, D.C. and El Salvador, SWEETWATER AMERICAN is the story of an orphan and would-be filmmaker who is sent to live in a cursed town in El Salvador with her godmother, a woman whom she has never met and who may hold the secret to breaking the town’s curse: no babies have been born alive in five years.

Through Sandy Rodriguez and Elena Martinez, the two main characters, we are led into a different, haunting and magical world, where people test their faith every day and hold true to what they believe: that hardship and darkness can be overcome if one finds a reason to live.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Wow, this is a story that sucks you in from word one. A haunting tale of betrayal, love, and loss. The writer pulled me right into this strange world and didn’t let me go. You won’t be sorry to read this one. Very reminiscent of early Isabel Allende. Great story! Great unkown find!


Settle back and enjoy the ride! This book is extremely well written and thought-provoking. It carries the reader along seamlessly. Once started, I was eager for more.


This book elicited an emotional response which took me from heartbreak to elation in seemingly endless cycles. Sweetwater American is a book you will cherish and one which, once read, will likely remain in your memory for a lifetime. Joyously recommended!
