Orchids and Iguanas
A Novel of Healing in Mexico
Nina has always felt uncomfortable in her brown skin, and different from her white mother and the white world of Vermont where she grew up. Now, at twenty-one, she is determined to find her father, a Mayan her mother admits to having known only briefly. Nina believes she can find him, and when she does, she will finally know who she is and where she really belongs.
She travels to Mexico, entering into a world far more exotic and complicated than she ever imagined, a place of healers and psychic surgeons. Searching for her elusive father, Nina is surprised to find herself embarking on her own journey of healing, as life opens her to the love she has longed for.
