***********************************

On her twelfth birthday, Sierva Maria – the only child of a decaying noble family in an eighteenth-century South American seaport – is bitten by a rabid dog. Believed to be possessed, she is brought to a convent for observation. And into her cell stumbles Father Cayetano Delaura, who has already dreamed about a girl with hair trailing after her like a bridal train. As he tends to her with holy water and sacramental oils, Delaura feels something shocking begin to occur. He has fallen in love – and it is not long until Sierva Maria joins him in his fevered misery.

    Guy, I am having a horrible time finding this. I went to Maple Book Shop, they didn't have it, and checked with Octavia Bookstore that didn't have it either. I went to a small bookstore in the Marigny, and they didn't.

    The Orleans Parish library doesn't have one available until Jun 7, and they refer me to Jefferson Parish an a "exchange student" or whatever, and i may or may not found one available through them.
