“A well told and fascinating story where all the gem-like details fall together to form a rich and satisfying puzzle.” —Paula Lowe, Publisher, Big Yes Press, former editor Solo Novo Magazine

“More than a simple story, this is a detailed examination of life.” —A Book Lover’s Library

“Jack Remick has a gift with character creation [....] There is plenty of action, an intriguing plot and a lot of enjoyment to be drawn from this novel.” —

“A lyrical treasure [....] A beautiful, horrific, captivating read full of the lights and colors, the smells and music of southern Mexico and central California.” —Arleen Williams, author of The Thirty-Ninth Victim

The Widow (La Viuda) is ninety-two years old. She lives in a house filled with photos and coins, jewels and a sable coat. Aware that her memory is failing but burning with desire to record the story of her life on paper, she hires Gabriela, a nineteen-year-old Mixteca from Mexico. Gabriela is one of the few survivors of a massacre and treacherous journey to El Norte.

Gabriela and The Widow is a story of chaos, revenge, and change. Gabriela seeks revenge for the destruction of her village. The Widow craves balance for the betrayals in her life. In the end, The Widow gives Gabriela the secret of immortality.

Remick says, “This is the story of how The Widow makes Gabriela in her own image and sets her free from her bloody past. It is a book about mothers and daughters, it is a novel about women for women, but it is also a mythic recasting of the story of women before men.”
