Book Description: 
When community leaders began to doubt Abel Mendoza, the law practice he had spent years building began to crumble. It was the 1960s and there was but a handful of Mexican lawyers in California. Abel had worked tirelessly to earn respect in the courts, avoiding any semblance of a personal life to achieve his goals. Now, his personal and professional lives had collided and he found himself being rejected by the community that had previously supported and admired him. His fears of inadequacy kindled, Abel began to question who he really was, what he did, and where he belonged. A desire to avoid these questions and the people who had provoked them sent this small-town lawyer on a trip to escape not only his community but his own self-doubts, and into a relationship that changed his life completely.

My Review
 LOST AND FOUND by Ronald L. Ruiz was a well written adult literacy fiction book. I enjoyed following Abel Mendoza on his journey of self-discovery. I really felt for him as his life began to crumble around him.  I liked how he went on a trip to escape and ended up in a relationship.
