All the Crooked Saints

Maggie Stiefvater

Master storyteller Stiefvater (Raven Cycle series) returns with a tale set in 1962 Bicho Raro, Colorado a town where the people, particularly the Mexicans and Mexican Americans, are mysterious and magical. At the heart of this landscape is the Soria family who have the ability to perform unusual miracles and are sought out by pilgrims who come to the desert looking for cures. At the center of the family are three cousins who long to change its future. Beatriz wants only to be free to examine her own thoughts, Daniel performs miracles for everyone but himself and Joaquin spends his nights running a renegade radio station. When Daniel breaks a taboo by falling in love with one of the pilgrims, he sets in motion a chain of events that will upset the status quo of this tight-knit but dysfunctional community.
