A colorful story of personal growth that ripens in Rio.
Martins effectively captures life in Brazil's most famous city.
Beautifully written first effort.
I had the idea of writing Born in Rio when I was writing application essays for my MBA at The Wharton School of Business. When I finished the MBA in 2010, I began writing. Eventually as the plot unfolded, my own life changed, and, before I noticed, I found myself in Rio writing this story.
Born in Rio tells the story of a woman who goes back to her homeland after spending most of her life away. In a way my own experiences and living most of my life away from Brazil, the country where I was born, played a big role in the creation of this book which has been developed into a screenplay.
