Against the turbulent background of the Mexican Revolution, Elizabeth Borton de Trevino tells the story of one woman embarked on a search for her faith. Maria Estrada Brook, the tall pale daughter of aristocratic forebears, for whom her ancestral home on Bitterness Street in Mexico City symbolizes all worldly aspiration, lives through the dregs of experience as a camp follower in a guerilla war before she comes to terms with her life. It is story of tragedy and trail, of errors and failures, of endurance, courage and hope, which comes to a triumphant conclusion.
