From an up and coming author of fiction drama John David Cedeno, Cora’s Revenge is a compelling new saga of love and loyalty, dreams and drama, set against the backdrop of an unsettling world in the mid-20th Century. Cedeno’s newly published book is dedicated to all people in the world who have experienced pain and suffering as did the author. Readers will come to appreciate a story that is not only a fruit of Cedeno’s literary brilliance, but of evocative feelings springing from his real life experiences.

Cedeno’s saga is set on January 1940. This is an era when civilian uprisings and Michael Collins’s revolutionary movements were at the heart and mind of many locals; where clashes between the Irish Republican Army (IRA), Sinn Féin, and British troops were brewing; where Protestants and Catholics fought and killed one another over religious and philosophical views. This was the world’s socio-economic, philosophical and theological arena.

This is also an era of discrimination where women and people of color had no voting rights—least to say, no equal rights; where family is all one had to hold on to and the only respite from the psychological effects of the civil unrest; and where even marriages were had at early ages, in order to escape poverty, though many ended in disaster. Such is the canvass upon which Cedeno paints a contrasting and intriguing storyline that grips readers.

Despite all these, there are some genuine, love-filled marriages that succeed in spite of all obstacles to pursue their dreams. Such is the story about Cora’s Revenge. Beautiful but deadly, no matter where she goes, sacrifice follows. Her story warps readers seven decades into the past, to witness one woman who had bravely risen against the biases of the world. Cedeno has cleverly crafted a tale that awes readers up to the very last page.
