About the Book and Author
In this heartbreaking, uplifting, and riotously funny sequel to the blockbuster international bestseller, The Hummingbird’s Daughter, Luis Alberto Urrea reconfirms his status of one of our nation’s premiere writers. After the bloody Tomochic rebellion, Teresita Urrea, beloved healer and “Saint of Cabora,” flees Mexico with her father. Besieged by pilgrims and pursued by assassins, Teresita embarks on a journey through turn-of-the-century industrial America, where she meets immigrants, tycoons, royalty and poets, all waking to the new American century. And as she decides what her own role in this modern future will be, she must ask herself: can a saint fall in love?
