Written by the Mexican author Nora Girón-Dolce and divided into 6 short stories, this book is full of magic that takes you on a wonderful journey through Mexican customs and traditions that revolve around the Day of the Dead.
Reading this book was like sitting in front of the fire, drinking coffee and eating bread while someone told old legends in such a detailed way that it was as if I was there looking at the fields and the altars, smelling the rich food, listening to the wise words of a woman who enjoyed helping others and even understanding the incredible relationship between a dog and its owner.
The author has a style that allows you to easily connect with the characters, lose yourself between the pages and ultimately find you satisfied with the experience.
With a total of 56 pages the book is a quick read that is worthwhile and I highly recommend.
