EL PESO DE UNA MISA

UN RELATO DE FE

 


The eagerly-awaited Spanish language version

THE WEIGHT OF A MASS,

which has been beguiling readers,

and scooping up awards.

 

Couched in the language and look of a fairy tale,

and rich in solemn beauty, this tale of what

happened when a destitute widow begs only a

crust of bread in return for offering the Royal

Wedding Mass is based on a true miracle.
