What Others are Saying

Albuquerque: The Magazine
"As the president of Santa Fe Community College, Sheila Ortego, Ph.D., has encouraged an unending line of students to believe in the possibility of a better life through persistence and courage. In her new novel, The Road From La Cueva, Ortego tells the story of one woman who has to find it in herself to make that same journey. The book, she says, was years in the making, and came from inspiration in Ortego’s own life—which somehow makes the journey even more worthwhile."

January Magazine
"Sheila Ortego’s debut novel is interesting on several levels. Ortego holds a doctorate in American Studies from the University of New Mexico and she has taught Southwestern literature, women’s literature and women’s studies at several institutes of higher learning. She is currently the president of Santa Fe Community College, the first woman to hold that post. So, clearly, she is someone who has spent time exploring the intellectual side of making words that move hearts.

On the other hand, Ortego is a poet and she was recently invited to join the Live Poets Society in Santa Fe.

Both of these facets of Ortego’s life path are well represented in The Road from La Cueva..."

Those who like stories of self-discovery, those interested in women's studies, and those who appreciate gorgeous writing will especially enjoy this book. So what are you waiting for? Let me know you would like the opportunity to win this book!
