Summary (From the publisher):

His mother talks piously of the heaven that awaits the good and disciplines him with an ox prod. His grandmother burns his treasured crosses for kindling. His cousins meet to plot their grandfather's death. Yet in the hills surrounding his home, another reality exists, a place where his mother wears flowers in her hair and his cousin Celestino, a poet who inscribes verse on the trunks of trees, understands his visions.
