The Birth of a Dream (Belle of Colombia)

The Birth of a Dream (Belle of Colombia) by Bil Howard


Caught up in the fight for independence from Spain, Captain Santiago Eduardo Vasquez finds himself locked in another battle as Ana Maribel Arboleda captures his heart in the plaza of Zipaquirá.

Gazing across the valley of Bogotá, the dream of a life of raising Criollo horses and a starting a family in the distant mountains is born.

The dream remains vague as the disorganized Army of New Granada (Colombia), steps forward to meet the onslaught of the Spanish Army, fresh off of the battlefields of Europe where they faced Napoleon.

Wounded on the field of battle, Santiago is rescued by Maribel’s cousin Esteban and lead to safety. It will take the faith and fortitude of Maribel to keep the dream alive.
