Nestor, why does this creature hate me so much? Why does she hate my blood?

Minerva Herrera, a young Colombian woman and devout Catholic, is the love of Nestor McCorley s life. And although twelve years of parochial school have left Nestor with mixed feelings about God and the Church, he and Minerva marry after a brief courtship. She quickly becomes pregnant and the couple enjoy a happy domestic life. But in the late stages of her pregnancy, as Minerva is lighting a candle to the Blessed Virgin, she is confronted in the church by a frightening woman who hurls a shocking curse at her and her unborn child.

In the weeks following the incident, ominous things begin to happen. With his marriage on the rocks and his wife s health at risk, Nestor begins to search for answers.

Who is this woman? Is someone seeking revenge for something in Nestor s past? Is Minerva s former lover trying to get her back? Nestor enlists the help of a priest as he revisits his Catholic grammar school and combs the city for answers. Everyone he meets becomes a suspect as Nestor s life begins to unravel, and his worst nightmares become real.
