Mark has finished a novella called “The Patròn’s Wife.” “It is the path of all affairs, selfishness, deception, and possession.” Emilio Aguilar reflects on his latest failed love affair with a married woman. He journeys to El Paradiso, the vast plantation in the Ecuadorian highlands above the Amazon jungle to retreat from civilization, temptation and himself. Then he meets Alma, the Patròn’s wife. Alma is caught in a loveless marriage to Hector, an overbearing older man who wants an heir. With the help of an Indio, Leòn, Alma escapes the pain through her spirit animal, the jaguar. “Its golden eyes burned into mine. Leòn looked away from the animal; he even held his hand up to shield his face and gave the big cat a wide berth.” Can Alma conquer her spirit animal and save her soul? Will Emilio be true to himself? Can Hector control his temper? Or will they be swallowed up by jealousy, the jungle, and madness?

    Review by: George Henry on July 13, 2017 :
    A heady cocktail of love, lust, revenge and the mystical in the Amazon jungle!

    Imagine yourself fleeing a broken romance with a married woman who may be pregnant with your child to become entangled with the unhappy wife of a domineering and dangerously volatile husband. This is the nerve-wracking situation Emilio, an engineer, finds himself in when he takes on a project deep in the Peruvian jungle that Mark Giglio paints so vividly the reader will be immersed in its vines, canopy of trees, animal life, waterfalls and pools. Add a liberal dash of Amazon Indian mysticism and the spice of the husband’s unexpected request and the reader has a heady cocktail of human relationships and magical realism to swallow. Mark Giglio invites you into a world where the rationale meets the mystical with explosive results. You won’t be disappointed.

    This book immediately puts you in a deep green sticky humid jungle. I have never been in a jungle but could imagine myself batting insects and sweating along with Emilio. The plantation is isolated and otherworldly where anything seems possible . The ending was vivid and satisfying where the lovers actually survive the dangers of quicksand, snakes and a crazed husband. This is a good read

    The story is very emotional and kind of saddening. Everything feels so real and natural in this story, even the fantastic elements (and there are just about enough of those elements). The descriptions are nice and vivid. I could see and imagine every scene which was written. I loved to hear both Hector’s and Alma’s perspective of their relationship and while I was reading it I looked for inconsistencies in the stories, but find none – which is great. The touch of mystery is always welcome and appreciated in these stories, and you did a great job with the dreams and the jaguar. It was something which FELT beautiful and dangerous at the same time, amazing and frightening. The technical part of the story is great. The style of writing is to be admired, since it completely puts the reader under a spell, so to speak, making them completely enchanted by the story. Overall, it’s an overwhelming story, well written and worth reading.

    I signed up to do the smashwords review however I could only read the 20% that smashwords allows you to read. It will not allow me to write a review without having first purchased the book. I would love to purchase your book but unfortunately I cannot, I do not have any money on my credit card at all, but I thought it said that if you sign up to do the book review that you can get the book for free? So how do I do that?
