    [Read] (The Accidental Santera A Novel) Read & download The Accidental Santera A Novel Originally I didn't have very high hopes for the book The Spanish dialog being used between the character just seemed too forced It may have been intended to add extra credibility to the latina main character but it ended up making me feel something in between alienation and annoyance since I only know a very small amount of Spanish myselfAs the book progressed though there was a bit less Spanish and I could fo

The Accidental Santera A Novel Read ☆ 102 Novel also sheds light on the beliefs at the heart of other New World religions born from Yoruba traditions “The Accidental Santera” is an entertaining read that offers much needed insight into a growing religion com The Accidental Santera A Novel In this debut novel a field biologist unsatisfied in her career and unhappy in her marriage after suffering three miscarriages discovers Santera the Yoruba religion brought by African slaves to the Caribbean where it mixed with Catholicism The Accidental Santera A Novel by Irete Lazo The Accidental Santera is an evocative and sensitively written novel that captures the essence of a religion shrouded in mystery It's Lazo's thinly veiled personal testament to a newly acuired faiththat brings spiritual comfort to those who follow its creed”. I wanted to read a novel about Santeria and found this one through a Google search I didn t go into it with the highest of expectations and while it s deeply flawed I did find myself enjoying it than I thought I might The book is uite obviously a very thinly veiled novelization of the author s own faith journey written with all the enthusiasm of the newly converted which at times is energizing and at others embarrassingThe book tells the story of Gabrielle Segovia a marine biologist and college professor who is struggling with her own infertility She doesn t give much thought to religion until she gets a reading on a whim in a voodoo shop while at a conference in New Orleans and she is so shaken by what she hears that she makes contact with family members she hasn t seen since childhood who she knows to be involved with Santeria She begins the process of being inducted into the family religion while struggling deeply with what her coworkers will think of her if they ever learn that she practices an ancestral religion complete with animal sacrifices The book shines in giving an even respectful introduction to a secretive and often misunderstood religion we learn a lot about the gods and get a taste of some of the rituals However the author being a convert herself she is obviously invested in putting Santeria is the best possible light both for her readers and for herself predictions are clearly stated and always come true no matter how skeptical Gabrielle may be upon hearing each one Overall the book is not terribly well written and would have little to recommend itself if it were a novel about a better known religion However the subject matter itself is interesting enough to make up for a good percentage of these shortcomings I wouldn t go so far as to recommend this book to anyone but I got what I was looking for out of it and didn t regret my decision to read it
