A novel by

 
 
By the critically acclaimed author of Tyger Tyger, a warm, magical story of a girl's struggle to keep a promise to her dead mother.

Glorieta Magdalena Davis Espinosa is happy that Papi married Alice. She's happy that he can smile again after years of mourning Mama. But the urn containing Mama's ashes disappeared into a drawer the day Alice moved in.

If everything about Glorieta's life is going to change, then she wants one thing to go her way: She wants to hear stories about her mama when the family gathers on the last night of los Dias de los Muertos. And that can only happen if Tia Diosonita will allow Mama to be buried with the Espinosas in holy ground. If she will allow people to speak Mama's name.

With the help of her best friend, River, and her cousin Mateo, Glorieta sets out to convince Diosonita that Mama is not burning in Hell. To do so, she'll have to learn to let hate go - and to love the people who stand in her way.

In prose that sparkles with magical undertones, author Kersten Hamilton weaves a tender story about grief, faith, and the redemptive power of love.
