Product description

This illustrated book recounts the tale of The Weeping Woman, a famous ghost story throughout Mexico and the southwestern United States. The story centers around Maria, a young girl who works in her family's inn. Maria has a cozy home and a loving mother, but she wants more?she longs to be rich. When Maria turns 18, she marries a wealthy man. But she still isn?t satisfied. What happens next makes Maria wish she?d been more grateful for her life. Something terrible occurs, and Maria becomes a ghost. She is doomed to haunt Mexico, crying for everything she's lost. From that day forward, Maria is known as the weeping woman. Some say you can still hear the ghost's cries echoing through the night.
