"the most spectacular mistake is a love story to herself, her roots, and the sacred ritual of chanting the past to heal into the present. It is a testament of the connection between the core of the body, the heart and spirit. Vallez undoes the entanglements of life and the ancestors she carries in her palms while weaving together traditional offerings through words. A lyrical altar reclaiming her existence and triumph."
— Sarah Rafael García, author of SanTana’s Fairy Tales & founder of LibroMobile

"This book is a beautiful declaration of healing and reclaiming power in the face of patriarchy, abuse, colonialism and doubt."
