Rosita's church was somber, a dimly lit chamber with images of saints, smoking incense, and flickering candles. The church, like the village, was dark and filled with superstitions.
Overhead the wind whistled through the tall cohune palms. Wind in the cohunes often announced a change of weather. Listening to the singing, Rosita wondered if perhaps the waving of the cohunes were signaling more than just changes in the weather.
Based on a real person's experiences, Wind in the Cohunes portrays one girl's struggles and disappointments, and also a wonderful discovery that brought her security and hope.
