Title: The Hummingbird's Daughter

Author: Luis Alberto Urrea

KDL Description:


Teresita is not an ordinary girl. Born of an illiterate, poor Indian mother, she knows little about her past or her future. She has no idea that her father is Don Tomas Urrea, the wild and rich owner of a vast ranch in the Mexican state of Sinaloa, or that Huila, the elderly healer who takes Teresita under her wing, knows secrets about her destiny.

Amazon Description:

This historical novel is based on Urrea’s real great-aunt Teresita, who had healing powers and was acclaimed as a saint. Urrea has researched historical accounts and family records for years to get an accurate story.
