I really enjoyed this story. My daughter and I were having a little argument because we were raised Catholics but she says she doesn't want to have a religion that we should stop believing these stories that have been fed to us throughout the years.

I had a difficult time getting into the plot of the story - stop reading about 75 pages into it.
Met the author more than once. Liked Milagros, The Girl from Away. Purchased two copies of that one directly from her (one to read and one to lend). The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind was right up there with Milogras. Highly recomend both ---- and this is coming from an adult reader!
