Tio Jorge is two novels into one, the story of George/Jorge and Miguel, and their impossible love, and the story of Rebecca and her quest for the truth. To Rebecca, George was always Tio Jorge, her father’s best friend, and when he was accused of killing her mother, she knew something was wrong. When years later, on her graduation day from Stamford University, she sees George again, among the crowd, Rebecca realized it’s time for her to track her roots back to Mexico, to the place where his father went back, abandoning her, and where he ultimately found death.

Even if the focus is on Rebecca, I found myself looking for George’s part of the story, this man who was evidently in love with Miguel, Miguel, a man who, instead of waiting for George, flew to Mexico, bringing up another family, basically betraying not only George but also his own daughter, Rebecca. Despite this, George is clearly still in love with him, and he is conveying his love into Rebecca, and even on the remaining family that Miguel left, that family that stole Miguel from him.

Tio Jorge is not specifically a bisexual/gay novel, if not for the fact that George is gay; probably to many readers, this will be Rebecca’s story, her discovery journey, and even her own love story, but to me this was George’s story, a man who wanted a family, a lover and sons. I’m true, I blame Miguel, a character that I was not able to empathize with, I didn’t hear his voice, or maybe I didn’t want to listen, cause to my eyes, it appeared that he always opted for the easy way, even when that way was tragically wrong for the ones he loved.
