Gabriela and The Widow

Gabriela and The Widow - Jack Remick Describe 2 different settings or locations. Lots of bodies laying on the ground. Rotted flesh, still attached to the bones. Rancid smell of rotting flesh.

The toad shop - Giant toad skins hanging on the wall. Still bloody with a small like infection from a deep wound. Purses were made from the toads, with eyes still intact.

What I liked. I liked the entire book. The prose was captivating and the way it floated in and out with a little Spanish, it made me think of Penelope Cruz playing Gabby.

What kind of book is this? Fiction - Gabby became LaViuda. All the visions Gabby got from LaViuda. The toad shop. It is also a very emotional read filled with revenge, sadness, myth and legend.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
