Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “Legend of the Lost Ass ” by Karen Winters Schwartz, Red Adept Publishing, July 21, 2020 On Tour with Suzy Approved Book Tours
Karen Winters Schwartz, the author of “Legend of the Lost Ass” has written an intriguing and memorable story. The genres for this book are: Action and Adventure, Historical Literature, and Fiction. This is also a witty story.There are two time-lines in this novel, one in 1949, and one in 2019. This story is pure adventure, and is in the United States and Central America and does land in Belize. The author describes her characters as quirky, flawed, complex and complicated.
In this novel, there is the past and present. The past consists of a young Ernesto with a stubborn borrowed donkey, “Bee” set off to find the love of his life, in America. In the present an older Ernesto is trying to make amends by sending his precious tractor, “Miss Mango” to his family in Belize. The author discusses the importance of second chances, forgiveness, the importance of family, friends, love and honesty.
Is it ever too late to ask for forgiveness? Can a person overcome their weaknesses? I would recommend this witty and thought-provoking novel to other readers.
