Editorial Reviews

Review

"Touching, hopeful, and hauntingly real, Patricia Santos Marcantonio captures the bittersweet struggle of a mother's love in this stunning retelling of a popular Mexican ghost story."
Bonnie Dodge, author of "Waiting" --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Author

As a kid in Pueblo, Colorado, I lived down the street from a cemetery, which to any horror fan is like living near Disneyland.
The cemetery was old. A tall and ominous stone wall surrounded the place, which we ignored during the day. But nighttime was another matter. Facing our street was a black iron gate in the cemetery wall and a lone light above that threw off a yellow illumination not only attracting bugs, but evil. Just inside the gate was a gravestone with the name Frankenburg or something similar. To us, however, it became Frankenstein's resting place, or unresting place. We dared each other to touch the stone and live to tell the story. I tried once. My fingers grazed the cool marble and I swore I heard Frankenstein moan, or maybe it was Frankenburg.

My friends and cousins tried to outdo one another in scaring the socks off each other in the evenings before our parents called us in for the night. And as Latinos, we specifically terrified each other with sightings of La Llorona.
