The Salvation of La Purísima
A novel, by T.M. Spooner ISBN: 0-915745-55-0 Hard cover $29.95
T.M. Spooner’s first novel, The Salvation of La Purísima, explores the forces driving Mexican migrants north and the resulting impact on the communities and families left behind. The journey north is no longer just an economic necessity, but has evolved into a rite of passage for so many of Mexico’s rural youth.
A migrant he befriends draws the novel’s narrator, anthropologist Paul Westin, to Mexico. As Westin becomes more involved with the migrants and learns of a tragedy among them, he struggles to maintain professional objectivity. In Mexico he encounters La Purísima, the fractured village and symbol of rural Mexico, desperately struggling with the mysterious death of one of its own young men. The strange and unexpected reactions of the villagers force Westin and a local priest, Father Gabriel, to search for a solution to save La Purísima.
The Salvation of La Purísima is compellingly told and written – with tender regard for its characters. The novel leaves the reader with a richer appreciation for the migrants, the human condition, and a sense that something profound has been experienced.
