KIRKUS REVIEW

If you can convince your customers that the jacket blurb is not exaggeration, you will have sold or rented this book. The 17th Century saint is brought to life against a background so realistic we can only say that reading Street of The Half Moon is almost as good as a trip to Cartagena Now that the Indies are almost the only place left to go, you can suggest this story of St. Peter Claver, ""slave to the slaves"", for it will make a trip to those islands doubly interesting. Accuracy in every detail, a sense of atmosphere, color and spirit of the place, add to its value for this winter's travelers.
