The Inheritance of Orquidea Divina by Zoraida Cordova

The members of the Montoya family are used to strange, magical things happening around them. It all seems to stem from their family matriarch, Orquídea. 

One day, each of the Montoyas, living all over the United States, receive an invitation from Orquídea that states she’s dying, and each member of her family should come collect their inheritance. When everyone arrives, they find Orquídea turning into a tree, and she still won’t fully explain the magic that has always been in their lives. What they learn is that their family matriarch made a deal 48 years ago – a deal that affected all of them, and now she’s trying to protect them from a danger none of them even imagined.

This book was fantastic! It was full of whimsy and magic. I enjoyed that the book alternated between Orquídea’s life in the past and the current lives of her descendants, and how they intertwine. I highly recommend this book if it sounds like something you might enjoy!
