Shelfari edited the description of Dos Santos - Novel Sunday, November 18, 2012.
Back in the days when the local Taíno people called their homeland Borikén, the newly arrived Spaniards named the island San Juan Bautista. There, two vastly different cultures met in a struggle that would help define a new people. In the midst of that struggle one man set out to find a place for himself and fulfill his dreams. Taking risks to change his destiny he found the life he sought, and the love he didn't know he needed, in an unexpected place....among the Taínos. His new life exposed the differences between Taínos and Spaniards and challenged his beliefs and loyalties. Dos Santos is a captivating story set in the earliest days of the Spanish conquest of the Caribbean island that would eventually be called Puerto Rico. With a carefully researched historical backdrop, the story of Dos Santos will give the reader a rare glimpse into the life of the Taíno culture of the period, while retracing a fascinating chapter in the early Spanish conquest of the new world.
