Communication with Angie Cruz the Latina Author

Dear readers, I read the book let it rain coffee by Angie Cruz. I found the book enjoyable to read and I sent Angie Cruz an email and she replied.  Here below are mine written thoughts to her and her response also.


 Hello Angie Cruz,




 I read your book "Let It Rain Coffee" it is



 fantastic and inspiring.  The characters, Don Chan,


 Santo, Esperanza, Hush, Dallas, Caridad, Miraluz, Mr


 and Mrs Hernandez, Bobby, Consuelo are all kind of


 intertwined.  How?  By their life stories, how they


 evolved through deaths and births, in their search


 for something, found something greater; my typical


 example would be Esperanza and Miraluz; very similar


 yet different.  Hush played a huge significance in


 the lives of Santo's family.  Her presence in their


 lives enabled lots of changes.  Inshort the book is


 just too awesome.  You did an awesome job, i would


 say.






 As a person of African descent.  Nigerian origin to


 be precise.  You brought to life what i can identify


 with in terms of struggle, enlightenment,


 forgiveness, questions and answers through your


 characters, the only difference is the origin being


 Dominican Republic (D.R.).  





 I can't wait to read Soledad.  I pray that i would


 locate it in my local library in London cause that


 is where i found, Let It Rain Coffee; Newham Library


 to be precise.  I have to go now.  Hope to hear from


 you and if not.  Keep on keeping on with your books.





 Take care now and all the best.





 Ifeyinwa (Ify) Atuanya.

Dear Ify,

Thank you for your letter and encouraging words.

Especially at this moment while I am writing my third

novel. As a writer there are always moments of doubts
and letters like yours remind me why I should
continue. 
In sisterhood,
Angie
