Overview

In this powerfully eerie tale by Lucinda Ciddio Leyba, the legend of La Llorona is recast as the tale of a witch intent on doing evil in modern Santa Fe.

By the light of the full moon, La Llorona is released from her earthly tomb. Cursed with the memories of her past, she becomes obsessed with reclaiming what was taken from her and preys on Santa Fe's innocent citizens. One of the unwittingly haunted is Christina, a young mother caught up in the ancient tradition of curanderas and witches. As she slips dangerously into the dark recesses of La Llorona's twisted mind, Christina becomes desperate to protect her own children from the terrifying madness, and must find a way to stop the evil that possesses her before she loses her sanity and everything she holds dear.
