Weep, Woman, WeepWeep, Woman, Weep by Maria DeBlassie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sadness and madness, the curse of La Llorona, also known as the weeping woman, is the plague of a small New Mexican town. Mercy is a young woman who is determined not to fall as the women before her have. Will she succeed? Will she stumble?

Weep, Woman, Weep was a quick enjoyable read. It did take me a moment to really get into the story, at first, I found it a little difficult to follow. I did quickly adjust to the writing style and found myself sucked into it the story and unable to put the book down. The struggles Mercy talks about as well as experiences are relatable, as well as thought provoking. The struggle to be happy and succeed, not let the bad moments keep you down is something anyone is something anyone can at the very least understand, many having experiences it in there own lives. While I think this story could be even better if it was expanded into a longer novel and had the time to go into more depth, I did feel it was worth the time it took to read.
