Margarita...wild of heart and powerful in her earthborn mystery is the indomitable Indian matriarch who guards her family and conquers her enemies with the cutting edge of unconditional love - and a touch of magic. As a young woman, she was swept away by Juan Jesus Villaseñor, a powerful arrogant man who carried the blood of Spanish royalty in his veins - and who, unarmed, once wrestled with the great serpent that held his village hostage - and won.
Together, Don Juan and Dona Margarita would create a dynasty on the eve of the Mexican Revolution. Their daughters...Emilia and Luisa, beautiful, sensuous, mysterious, who find courage and endurance in their mother's faith, and searing, explosive passion amid the turmoil of war. Their sons...Jose, who becomes a legendary horseman and a hero of the revolution. And Juan, the youngest, Victor Villaseñor's father, through whose eyes this brilliant, tumultuous saga unfolds.

Not an authentic Spanish-speaking narrator.
As much as I loved Rain of Gold, the storyline has not exactly captured my interest. But worst of all I find the narration off-putting- to hear the narrator pronounce words incorrectly or with an improper accent 😣😖. I wish that audio books including significant Spanish language content would employ a narrator who is bi-cultural, having native level speaking fluency in Spanish.

Great story>narration okay
I am an avid fan of Mr. Villasenor and so looked forward to listening to this. The story line was funny, interesting, and easy to follow. However, the narrator could not say words correctly in Spanish and mangled too many words that it took away from the story. I quit after chapter two and got a refund. Its unfortunate that we cannot get competent narrators who speak fluent Spanish on here!
