Review of "Magdalena" novel by Cecilia Manguerra Brainard, by Maribel Paras

Cecilia Manguerra Brainard's novel, MAGDALENA, is a poignant story of the lives and loves (some forbidden) of three generations of women against a background of Filipino culture. Our generation, which is aware of family lineages which include frailes and of how the feudal system has influenced our society, will easily identify with it. This story leaves a tug in the heart and gives an understanding and appreciation of the vicissitudes of life.
