The Guadalupe Saints
Tony Guadalupe feels out of place at his high school. He soon learns that his life is ineluctably woven with one of the great visionaries of Mexican history, Juan Diego, the indigenous peasant who first envisioned Our Lady of Guadalupe. A direct descendant of Juan Diego, Tony Guadalupe must confront his unknown past and accept both his burdens and gifts, a journey undertaken in different ways by his grandfather and his father. Meanwhile, the Catholic Church seeks to disempower the Guadalupes, whose shamanistic lineage connects them to the Aztec goddess Tonantzin.
Review: “If you hadn’t heard of Tonantzin, the goddess of the Aztecs who was dethroned by the Virgin of Guadalupe, you’ll certainly know of her after reading this intriguing novel. Michael M. Pacheco manages to summarize 500 years of miracleworking performed by the descendants of Guadalupe into a captivating plot. It pulls you in, like a wormhole through time.” ~Cindy Davis, author of the Bandit Books series
NB: The Guadalupe Saints won second place in the International Latino Book-to-Movies Awards in 2012.
