Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book offers fascinating insight into the Roman Catholic Church's role in the 17th-century slave trade and its harsh views of race and gender. As for de Jess, she comes across as a woman of great wisdom and deep spirit who never turned bitter but who embraced the power of a greater humanity through an unshakeable faith. Her story should be read and savored."

From the Inside Flap

This translation of part of the diary of a 17th century Peruvian mystic includes the convent life of slaves and former slaves and baroque Catholic spiritual experiences from the perspective of a woman of color.
