Audible Editor Reviews

Southern Gothic meets South American magical realism in Edward Swift's transfixing novel The Daughter of the Doctor and the Saint. Set in an undisclosed Latin American country, the story centers on the life of rich and revered 82-year-old Josefina Esperon, who, at the outset of the novel, is searching for an heir. But Esperon's life holds a dark secret, and the quest for an heir is not all that it seems. This story is narrated with reverential warmth by Adriana Sananes, whose Spanish accent enlivens the tale with local color.

Publisher's Summary

She lives for love, poetry and revenge. Her mother is considered a living saint; her father a man of science and logic. The daughter's lifelong mission - to destroy the family that murdered her father, distorted her mother's reputation, and ruined her country - is fulfilled on the day she invites the president of the nation to lunch.
