Para mí eres divina
David Unger

NOVEL | 2011 | 438 pages

Para mí eres divina tells the story of Olivia, a not-so-beautiful girl who lives with her brother and her estranged mother on a coffee plantation in the verdant draped mountains of Guatemala. Like her mother and the many other coffee pickers that work with them, Olivia is destined to become just another disposable woman—beaten and abused by the men in power. But her luck turns the day she meets Sister Carina, a dedicated nun who offers her a scholarship to attend a boarding school in Antigua. From that moment on, Olivia embarks on a quest to find herself, and find the love she has never considered herself worthy of—a journey that will ultimately lead her all the way to Mexico City, and a life she would have never dreamed of. With great empathy and insight, Unger explores the shifting nature of an extraordinary life, revealing the means by which we slowly—and sometimes painfully—come to find ourselves.
