A woman is haunted by the Mexican folk demon La Llorona as she unravels the dark secrets of her family history in this ravishing and provocative horror novel.
Alejandra is depressed. Very depressed. She isn’t sure who she is besides a wife and a mother. She struggles with a lot of things and feels she is losing her mind.
She goes to see a therapist when she begins to see a ghostly figure when she is the most stressed.
To find her way she will go back to the past. To her biological mother and her history. The more she digs the more she finds that her female relatives have more in common than being family. The crying woman was with them as well. This begins with the stories of La Llorona, the vengeful mother of Mexican legends. And this ghostly woman won’t leave until Alejandra has made the journey into darkness as well.
I was intrigued by this story of heartbreak, and strength and I enjoyed all of it.
