Overview

Montezuma's Daughter by H. Rider Haggard

My dear Jebb, Strange as were the adventures and escapes of Thomas Wingfield, once of this parish, whereof these pages tell, your own can almost equal them in these latter days, and, since a fellow feeling makes us kind, you at least they may move to a sigh of sympathy. Among many a distant land you know that in which he loved and fought, following vengeance and his fate, and by your side I saw its relics and its peoples, its volcans and its valleys.

Fast paced, a true page-turner. A little hard to read because it was written in old style long sentences. A heart melting love story, an idealized love it is the one Otomie gives Thomas. Anyone who loves so wholly and deeply will relate to this woman's passion. Though, no indication is shown as of how did Otomie fall so madly in love with a stranger, there was no story to lead to that, and that is a minus. There is a lot to learn of the Aztec's rituals and practices, and of the end of its last monarch, Montezuma. If you enjoyed this book, also see the movie Apocalypse with Mel Gibson, and read Colin Falconer's Aztec - or the Feathered serpent, same book with different title.
