The Journal of Antonio Montoya is the first book of the Guadalupe series. When little Jose Montoya's parents are killed one August morning by a cow, his Tia Ramona and his Tio Flavio are troubled by how best to raise the boy. After the funeral, they drive to their childhood home behind the village office, but before they reach the house, the front door swung open and Ramona's grandfather, Epolito Montoya, who had been dead for thirteen years, stood in the doorway. `Why are you out in the rain? he said. Ramona has returned reluctantly to this isolated village in northern New Mexico and to the family that never lets go. As she tries to build a modern life here on her own terms, and still to care for young Jose, she discovers that she can reach through time, see the richness of her heritage, and reclaim riches, knowledge, art that disappeared generations ago. In fact, she can speak with her ancestors and learn their stories. These, finally, are the fortunes she will try to pass on to Jose.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by John Biscello | 11/4/2013

    " A wonderfully understated gem. Haunting, poignant, and written with a precise economy. "

    " Stands with the best novels about life in the magical 'land of enchantment' of Northern New Mexico. A virtually perfect short novel with a magic realist flavor, but perfectly accessible to any reader. Poignant, humorous, charming and beautifully written. Collignon hits the nail on the head. "

    " Very flat tone, kind of depressing even. Lots of impossible things happen for no apparent reason. Not my cup of tea. "

    " One of my favourite novels. Beautifully written, haunting tale, engaging story, characters and writing style. "
