From the back: "The story of a young woman whose gifts as a healer lend her the aura of a saint, and who must come to terms with a surprising destiny as all of Mexico rises in revolution, crying out her name."

8 out of 10

I had some difficulties getting going with the book as the initial buildup of the story took too long to my liking. When the pace picked up and I got to know and like the characters (with their failings and all) it turned out to be quite an enjoyable read - although some of the praise at the back of the book do stretch its merits a bit far. Recommended reading nevertheless.
