The Bone Woman

Michelle Garza Cervera

Valeria and her husband Raul’s dream have finally come true: Valeria is pregnant. At first, everything seems perfect. Gradually, though, her mood darkens. With motherhood upon her, Valeria can’t shake off heavy self-doubt and a pervasive dread stemming from horrible visions and other possibly supernatural threats, all of which may be the work of an entity known as La Huesera—The Bone Woman. Hoping to confront her demons, she reconnects with the old, more carefree life she once gave up for Raul, including rekindling an old flame with her first love, Octavia.
