Living at the turn of the 20th century in a small village in northern Mexico, the secretive Jews of the Caraval family have more in common than they realize with the Tarajumara, an indigenous people hiding from persecution in the mountains. This link between cultures brings both spiritual enlightenment and tragedy to those who dare step outside the strict social and religious boundaries imposed by Catholicism. Ms. Alcalá brings us face to face with a largely forgotten and painful history while at the same time inspiring the reader with glimpses of our potential to experience love and faith in unique and powerful ways.
Now to postpone the rest of my life so I can read the next in the trilogy (Flower in the Skull) more quickly
So far a very interesting read.
