A grand and sweeping saga which will take you out of your world from the first page and drop you back in like a stone when you are finished. This novel based on historical events and characters from the author's family, takes place in turbulent late 19th century Mexico and follows the tumultuous life of Teresita, the actual "Saint Of Cabora" from her childhood as a unusual and gifted girl through, well...just read it. — Karen Frank
The Hummingbird’s Daughter took my breath away. With beautiful prose and an incredible gift for storytelling, Urrea recounts the life of his Great-Aunt Teresita who has a gift for healing. Set in turn-of-the-century Mexico, civil war is imminent and tension is high. An orphan, Teresita is taken under the wing of a curandera and taught to develop her gift. What she does with it is up to her. Highly recommend! — Amelia Stymacks
