)-- Jacì, the demure, beautiful daughter of a shopkeeper, finds love with Nivaldo, a hard-working young man from a neighboring village. They marry and raise a family, only to have their time together cut short due to a tragic accident. Jacì is left a widow with three children, unsure how to support herself and her young family. She turns to her father for help, but her stepmother is reluctant to take on the challenge of helping to raise Jacì’s children. Eventually, Jacì finds herself working at a hotel and trying desperately to make ends meet.
Shortly after taking the job at the hotel, Jacì meets the attractive owner of the hotel, Fernando Costa. Fernando is handsome, charming, and powerful— and he’s married. The two are brought together by fate, and unable to resist the love they feel for each other. Over the years, Fernando and Jacì make a life together in spite of the odds against them. The Hundreds Lakes is the story of their love, and the love shared by their blended family.
The Hundreds Lakes, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a love story—it tells of the love between Jacì and Fernando, and it expresses a deep love for this beautiful region of Brazil. Leonilda Goncalles is a native Brazilian who came to live in the United States in 1965. She has worked in many fields, and her interest in writing (particularly in writing stories of true love) was piqued when she took a class in Creative Writing. Goncalles has not been to the Hundreds Lakes region that inspired her story, but hopes to visit there in the future.
