|Copyright - For Inspiration Only: Queen Of America|
Queen of America picks up the tale when Teresita and her father enter the United States where they spend time in the Southwest - much of that in Arizona, which I love! Both books contain a mix of facts and fantastical elements, but have no doubt -- Teresita did exist, as proven by several of her relatives who also visited Urrea at his book talk. During her short but full life, Teresita performed a variety of healings... perhaps miracles... that earned her the title "Saint of Cabora."
It is Teresita's history that made me think of the faith she had and inspired in others. But even more, I think of the faith of Luis Urrea who worked for over 20 years to bring her story to us.
