Branches, An Epic Biography of a Central American Family, shares the wealth of facts not only about my ancestors, the powerful Zelayas of 1500s-1800s; the Nuilas in the forefront of revolutions, the Turcios and Súarez families that followed, but also the history of Central America- its discovery, its conquest, its pacification– mining, the first industry; the building of its iconic houses of worship and the ever-present revolutions. The modern history of Central America, focuses on Honduras, Costa Rica and of my family, from the 1800s, through the 1920’s and 1930’s, when governmental attempts to dissolve power that up to then had rested on the small elite segment of society giving way to dictatorial states everywhere but, Costa Rica. For the next fifty years with only brief and occasional lapses, dictators were at the helm. And it was in this environment, where families including mine, survived oppression, uncertainty and fear. Branches, describes our immigration to Costa Rica, the oasis of Central America, where my family thrived as workers and professionals, contributing to its citizenship– ultimately, immigrating to the United States in the 1950’s during the cusp of the cold war that as children we did not fully grasped because of our protective environment.
Reflecting on the lifespan of this one family that joined other branches, just as rich in their history, Branches offers a clear picture of the influence of religion, successful and responsible immigrations and the ultimate nature of families. Candidly written, Branches brings readers up close and personal to the commonalities of living, not excluding loss, hardships, and success in its varying degrees.
