    ¡Me siento muy orgullosa porque mi segundo libro, Del Mediterráneo al Plata ha sido nominado finalista en el Global eBook Awards bajo el rubro Genealogy/Heritage/Ancestry Non-Fiction! Está escrito en español y es la historia de la inmigración de mis antepasados desde Italia y España a la Argentina y basado fiemente en las memorias y notas que dejaron mis padres y familiares. Estoy realmente contenta. Gracias a todos los miembros de los eBook Awards quienes trabajaron en la nominación.

    • Claudia M. Gallegos says:

      In her second novel Del Mediterraneo al Plata published in Spanish, Isabel García Cintas invites us to temporarily reside in the skin of our ancestors and live their experiences of those courageous people who left their country in search of better fortune.
      Each character becomes a dear friend, with whom we will live adventures and miss ventures and they will be our companions for a while, until their lives cross roads.
      Even when it is not my story, nor the one of your grand parents, but it is the common story of European migrants who at the end of the 19th century and beginning of 20th left their land in search (perhaps) of a better life in the Americas. In this case, they travel to South America, and decide to stay in Argentina. However it could have been any other country.
      Isabel did a very thorough historical research and has a delightful writing.
      This book is her second, the Patagonia affair is the first and she is working on two others.

      En su segunda novela, Del Mediterráneo al Plata, Isabel García Cintas nos lleva en un viaje inesperado: meternos en la piel de nuestros antepasados y vivir las experiencias de quienes dejaron sus tierras en busca de mejor fortuna.
      Cada uno de los personajes se convierte en un amigo querido, con quien viviremos alegrías y peripecias y quienes nos acompañaran por largo rato, hasta que sus vidas al fin, se cruzaran.
      Aunque no es mi historia, ni la de tus abuelos, es la historia en común de todo inmigrante europeo que a fines del siglo XIX y principios del XX, decidió dejar su terruño y salir a la aventura de una vida -tal vez mejor- en las Americas. En este libro, van a America del Sur y se instalan en Argentina. Pero bien podria ser cualquier otro pais.
      Con excelente investigación histórica, Isabel nos deleita con un relato ameno, lleno de alternativas, muy bien escrito.
      Además de Del Mediterraneo al Plata – Historias de Familia (Spanish Edition), Isabel ha publicado Incidente en la Patagonia (Spanish Edition) también en venta en Amazon.

  30. Madeleine de Cubas says:

    I congratulate all the finalists and specially my friend Isabel Garcia Cintas. Your book, Isabel, “Del Mediterráneo al Plata” has an impeccable and passioned narrative that I have no doubt will put you among the winners. Great piece of literature.

  31. Haydee Zayas says:

    I am a writer and a workshops facilitator. I’ve created one called “Escribe tus vivencias” in which participants get the basic knowledge on how to write about their heritage and ancestors. I started using Isabel Garcia-Cintas’ book as a reference. The book captures you from the very beginning…
    I love to see participants faces when I read the very first paragraph:

    “… después de vicisitudes novelescas ambos llegaron a ser mis bisabuelos maternos.”

    Congrats to Isabel!! Her book is an example on how to write about your heritage with excellent narrative skills and make it so interesting to read!
