Read in June, 2008

This book was much more in keeping with the Da Vinci Code formula. Short, alternating chapters between time periods and points of view, a look into the history of apparitions/sightings throughout New Mexico of a nun preaching God's Word to American Indians in the 1600s and clues and revelations about the Catholic Church's involvement.

I enjoyed the alternating time periods and the writing flowed much better than author Javier Sierra's first American best-seller, The Secret Supper. However, the ending was a huge disappointment that I couldn't give it anything better than two stars. It was anti-climactic and the "revelation" or secret in the end--although surprising--wasn't earth-shattering. Plus, a tongue-in-cheek comment about the solution to the whole dilemma of leaking information to a writer and have him call the book "The Lady in Blue" was too contrived for my taste--leaving me with an unsatisfactory taste in my mouth.
