The Hummingbird's Daughter

The Hummingbird's Daughter

‘Extraordinary . . . deeply felt and beautifully told’ Observer

It is 1889. Civil war is brewing in Mexico, and sixteen-year-old Teresita has just woken from the strangest dream – a dream that she has died. Only it was not a dream. This passionate and rebellious young woman has arisen from death with a power to heal – but it will take all her faith to endure the trials that await her and her family now that she has become the Saint of Cabora.

The Hummingbird’s Daughter is the story of a girl and a country grappling with their destiny. Two decades in the writing, the result is an epic, dazzling novel of love and loss, joy and sacrifice.
