"A graceful tribute to a timeless religion, a testament to the transformative power of discovering your own spiritual side."
–New York Daily Challenge (Brooklyn)

"Highly recommended . . . Vega elegantly describes the rituals, meaning, and continuing relevance of Santeria, weaving her story into 12 chapters, each devoted to a different deity. Vega’s account is rich with patokis ("mythic stories") and the lessons they teach for daily living."
–Library Journal

"Engaging, scholarly, and accessible, this is an excellent book."

"Vega makes an excellent, informed spokesperson on Santeria, and her accessible book will help explain Santeria beliefs and practices to a wide audience."
–Publishers Weekly

"More than a compelling study of one of the world’s most fascinating religions, this inspiring account maps one woman’s profound journey from emptiness to overwhelming peace and joy."
–Carib News (New York)
