A review by brynebo
The Hummingbird's Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea


This is another book that didn't live up to its review in Bookmarks magazine (not that there aren't plenty that have!). Historical fiction is a touchy genre for me - I need the story to move along at a healthy gallop to really enjoy it. Overall, The Hummingbird's Daughter" was more of a trot. Though certainly a step up from the nonfiction "Devil's Highway."
