QUEEN OF AMERICA by Luis Alberto Urrea


When Luis Alberto Urrea was showing as a keynote speaker at a convention for a company I volunteer with (mwcqc.org) in June of 2017, I learn his The Humminbird’s Daughter. I loved it so learn the sequel, Queen of America.

Because it had been a number of months since I learn the primary e book within the sequence, I vastly appreciated the Prologue which jogged my memory of what occurred within the first e book and introduced me up-to-date in a pure approach.

The story begins in 1900, choosing up the place the earlier e book left off and following the remainder of Teresita’s life in America. It’s one reply to the query, what if an individual may carry out miracles however they have been nonetheless a human being with faults, wishes, and tendencies impacted by the tradition within the place the place she lives? How may that particular person’s life evolve?

My favourite elements of this e book have been the detailed, poetic descriptions. The story is offered from an omniscient perspective of these closest to Teresita. It exhibits the fun and sorrows of growing old from many alternative characters’ views.

It took me some time to get into the story, beginning off gradual a lot in the identical approach that The Hummingbird’s Daugther did for me. I learn it in just below two months, so on a can’t-put-it-down-scale of 1 for I couldn’t even end it to 10 for I used to be up till the wee morning hours, I give it a 4.

Supply: Urrea, Luis Alberto. (2012). Queen of America. Again Bay Books.
