The Names of Heaven: Review Quote (Dianne Hales)

The Names of Heaven is a compelling feat of writing. Novelist Flavia Idà brings to vivid, pulsing life the true story of Gonzalo Guerrero, the courageous survivor who founded the first European-American Family in 16th century Yucatan and a new race in whose veins, as the author puts it, ‘ran the blood of a man whom God had let fall off the edge of the world and fished back up on the other side.’ A meticulously researched look into the ancient Maya world and an absorbing, rousing tale of peoples and places caught up in the sweep of history.”
