.-  

With its debut in Mexico one month away, Nelson Publishers has announced it will publish a novel based on the original screenplay of the movie “Bella,” which won over audiences in the U.S. with its strong pro-life and pro-family message.

The novel has been written by Lisa Samson, an award-winning author of 19 books.

The screenplay by Alejandro Monteverde, Patrick Million and Leo Severino tells the story of Jose, “a man who gave up his life for the woman he loved.  Bella is an encouraging story that celebrates life, love, family and relationships,” said Nelson Publishers.

Produced by Metanonia Films, the movie was highly acclaimed in 2007 and won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival, the awards for Best Movie and Best Actor at the 2008 MovieGuide Awards, and the prestigious Legado Award of the Latin Center at the Smithsonian Institute.

The movie will be released on DVD on May 6.
