I was delighted and entertained by this light, yet culturally packed book. Quite provocative. Ms Hallock takes you on a ride that includes interesting characters who must deal in a world in which the help they should be able to count on, is as dangerous as the horrible situation which presents itself. Thus, these folks are forced to use their own wits and rely on one another. It is obvious that Ms. Hallock understands the Zapotec people. Their lives are much different from the more classical Mexican population, much more impoverished. But they are just as proud and insistant upon making a good life for themselves and their children, even when faced with murder and mayham. The book has mystery, fun, and for me a facinating insight into a part of the world and a people, who, in dealing with life "in the raw," show humor and ingenuity. They taught me much and set me to thinking of how I would have responded under the same circumstances. The main character is an American woman, kind but determined, snappy but introspective. I look forward to her, and her compatriot's, next adventure!
