In BECKONED, Part 1: From London with Love Angela Holguín–her last name is Spanish and derived from the word “holgar” which means “to enjoy oneself”–is 28-years-old and heading to London for an adventure. Angela is the fun-loving and adventurous only-child of a successful dentist and his wife who runs a small, high-end catering business.
Angela studied Cultural Anthropology in undergrad, and is very interested in other cultures. She has just graduated from an Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program and is starting a business writing culturally diverse children’s books.
She’s a strong, modern woman, figuring out how to negotiate the transition into full adulthood and how that affects her relationships with men. She has two BIG SECRETS in the form of past relationships, that color her relationships in BECKONED.
