The Lady In Blue by Javier Sierra

The Lady In Blue

A thriller in the vein of The Da Vinci CodeThe Lady in Blue centers on the mysterious appearances of a religious apparition going back to the 17th century and leading up to the present day.  The mysterious lady first appeared to Native Americans in what is now New Mexico, where she was able to convert thousands to the Catholic faith.  Her appearance was connected to a Spanish nun, who miraculously bilocated to spread the faith.  But what really happened?  What follows is a mystery that involves the Catholic Church, the US Department of Defense and a Spanish journalist.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this novel.  It wasn’t quite as exciting as The DaVinci Code, but the story of the lady in blue is actually based on truth – the Spanish nun did indeed exist, and the conversion of the Native Americans really happened.  Of course, the author presented the story with some fictionalized, exciting twists, but I appreciated learning something new about Church history.
