JUDITH McCONNELL STEELE
The Angel of Esperança
When tragedy overtakes her seemingly charmed family, Helena, a young wife and mother, becomes half-mad with grief and guilt. She is finally driven into her tower where her mournful cries echo nightly over the village of Esperança, leaving its people haunted and fearful.
A mythical tale of love, loss and redemption, Judith McConnell Steele's novel will capture readers as Helena herself is captured by her passions.
The Angel of Esperança, set in Brazil, has received glowing reviews from press and readers and was named Best Fiction in the 2013 Idaho Book Awards.
