Description: Esperanza Diaz, deeply religious and unaware of the enchanting, erotic effect of her own beauty, lives in a tiny Mexican village In Veracruz Tragically widowed at a young age, her. life is about to grow even sadder with the mysterious disappearance of her only child, her twelve-year old daughter Blanca, who never makes It out of the hospital after a routine operation. One night, weeping. as she cleans her kitchen, the grief-stricken Esperanza sees the image of her favorite "santito" -- Saint Judas Tadeo -- floating on her greasy oven door. "Blanca is not dead", he tells her. "Go and find her". So begins this often madcap, sometimes bittersweet and altogether irresistible first novel, which starts In this humble setting aria moves through Mexico, to the brothels of Tijuana aria to the streets of LA.

Convinced that her daughter has been sold into prostitution, Esperanza reinvents herself as a whore so that she'll blend In. This unlikely sex goddeSs goes from wearing sensible slides to strappy red spike heels, lights candles, says novenas, and lugs her precious box of household saints along every step of her journey.
