The Angel of Esperanca (Paperback)
When tragedy overtakes her seemingly charmed family, Helena, a young wife and mother, becomes half-mad with grief and guilt. She is finally driven into a tower where her mournful cries echo nightly over the village of Esperanza, leaving its people haunted and fearful. This mythical tale of love, loss and redemption will capture readers as Helena herself is captured by her passions.
