Una historia a veces desgarradora, inspiradora, apasionadamente romántica y con desenfrenado humor, La Reina Norteamericana es un relato sobre una joven que alcanza su mayoría de edad y tiene que encontrar su lugar en un mundo nuevo. Comenzando donde se quedó el bestseller de Luis Alberto Urrea The Hummingbird's Daughter, ahora en La Reina Norteamericana nos vuele a reunir, en Arizona en 1982, con la joven Teresita Urrea, amada curandera y "Santa de Cabora," y su padre. Asediada por lo colonos quienes necesitan desesperadamente de sus poderes curativos, y perseguida por asesinos, ella tiene más opción que escapar hacia las tierras fronterizas y embarcar en un extraordinario viaje hacia el corazón de la Norteamérica de fin de siglo. Esta aventura de Teresita la lleva desde Nueva York a San Francisco, pasando por St. Louis, donde conoce realeza europea, poetas cubanos, reinas de belleza, inmigrantes ansiosos y poderosos magnates, entre los cuales se encuentra un hombre que la obligará a finalmente formularse la pregunta más importante de su vida: ¿se le permite a una santa enamorarse?
