In spite of her fear, Teresa becomes more determined than ever to reach Texas when she witnesses a murder committed by the Delgado Cruz, a dreaded group of organized criminals. Later, to save her baby, Teresa must call upon her Aztec heritage to unravel the meaning of the granicera’s advice: "Follow the caged quetzal.”

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Peter Neissa
This is the sequel to Delfino's Journey. However, it is not necessary to have read Delfino's story to enjoy this tale about Teresa, a widowed 19-year-old who is taking her infant son from a remote area of Mexico to Texas in search of a better life. While en route to Texas, Teresa confronts the eruption of a volcano, which causes her to flee the home of her sister in the middle of the night. She listens to a granicera's (soothsayer) ominous warning that if she goes to Texas her son Antonio will die, and she witnesses a murder committed by a band of drug traffickers. Although the plot is somewhat predictable, the authors excel at conveying cultural information. They portray a world not known to many outside Mexico; for example, how mountains have souls and can become angered and explode. Teresa, a descendant of the Aztecs, explains it: "It's no use, she thought. It is tonali. The time of the fifth sun is over. Our world is coming to an end like it did on the passing of the Jaguar Sun and the Wind Sun." References to foods, plants, and the Nahuatl language are seamlessly blended into the plot and the reader is transported to another world, even though that world is our next-door neighbor. This is a novel that journeys through time, place, and culture.
