When Alma flees with her young lover to Texas to escape an arranged marriage with a much older man, she sets in motion a drama that will put the sisters and their legacy at risk. Pilar, a 14-year-old tomboy, is offered as a replacement bride, and what follows is a sensuous courtship and marriage clouded by the curses of her husband’s former lover, Consuelo. She will stop at nothing, even the use of black magic, in her effort to destroy the Sandoval family. The Mexican-American war begins and the Americans invade Santa Fe. The sisters survive the hostilities from two important fronts-New Mexico and Texas. Their money and ancient knowledge offer some protection, but their lives are changed forever. "This story of love, mysticism and betrayal tests the ultimate boundaries of sisterhood." Jill Smolinski, author of Objects of My Affection.
"An outstanding family saga." Historical Novel Review and History and Women
"One of the top 10 Latino Books, 2012." The Latino Author
