updated: Aug 31, 2017

Bernadette Rivas Soto, a devoted mother who desires to share the diversity of culture and tradition of other countries, has completed her most recent book “My Journey Off the Beaten Path: The Quest for My Roots, from Spain to the Philippines”:  a journey of the mind and heart as the author follows the path of her ancestor to better learn her heritage.

Bernadette shares her inspiration for writing.  She says, “This book was written as a tribute to my family and ancestors.”

Published by Fulton Books, Bernadette Rivas Soto’s book focuses on an eighteenth-century Spanish friar from Galicia, Spain, who became an ancestor to countless descendants in the Philippines. This is a journey of one descendant in her relentless pursuit of discovering her mysterious foreign ancestry. Her near-impossible feat of tracing her roots has brought her to mountainous medieval towns in the northwestern Spain, down to remotely unspoiled provinces of central Philippines. Join her as she travels across the globe to the unbeaten path of her ancestral land of birth and crisscrossing the untrodden road of her ancestor’s missionary calling. This quest will transport readers to an awe-inspiring rediscovery of the past and teach them to appreciate their importance and contribution to present time.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “My Journey Off the Beaten Path: The Quest for My Roots, from Spain to the Philippines” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
