Novel. This fictional recreation of the life of Teresa Urrea, a popular Mexican heroine at the turn of the century who in her teens began to manifest miraculous healing powers, is "a work rich in imagination and historical research whose main character and storyline are unforgettable" (Gabriella de Beer). Domecq relates the spread of Teresa's fame among the ill and disheartened, and the thousands who made the pilgrimage to see her. Teresa's sense of justice and her sympathy for the poor and oppressed drew her into political intrigue against the dictator Porfirio Diaz; exiled to the U.S., she continued to heal and inspire until her untimely death. "Brianda Domecq, undoubtedly one of the most daring women writers of Mexico, has written a truly astounding novel...where history and fantasy are woven into a wondrous creative voice" (Marjorie Agosin). Brianda Domecq, who is one of Mexico's leading writers, was born in New York but has lived most of her life in Mexico. Translated by Garcia Kay.
