"A romantic and sentimental tale, The Resurrection of Fulgencio Ramirez explores what bad choices and the ravages of time do to a border couple's love. The many plot twists keep the reader guessing about that age-old question: Can you ever return to what you have lost in the past?"-- "Sergio Troncoso, author of A Peculiar Kind of Immigrant's Son"
"Rudy Ruiz perfectly captures the thunderclap of true love and the magical, terrible, and beautiful ways its storm plays out through the lives of his characters.

A novel of redemption that will leave you in joyful tears."-- "Charlie Lovett, New York Times bestselling author"
