Reviews

"This book is fascinating...a valuable asset to colonial Latin American Literature."
"This book offers fascinating insight into the Roman Catholic Church's role in the 17th-century slave trade and its harsh views of race and gender. As for de Jess, she comes across as a woman of great wisdom and deep spirit who never turned bitter but who embraced the power of a greater humanity through an unshakeable faith. Her story should be read and savored."
