Recently, it has dawned on her that he isn't the only man who has left town. In fact, there are almost no men in the village--they've all gone north. While watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli decides to go north herself and recruit seven men--her own "Siete Magníficos"--To repopulate her hometown and protect it from the bandidos who plan on taking it over."--Publisher description.

I had real trouble getting into this book, but I eventually (maybe even 2/3 of the way in) became charmed by it. It's sort of a fairy tale, actually, complete with happy ending, and a feisty heroine.

The Audiobook CD was okay – but not one of my favorites.

So beautifully written - unforgettable. I fell in love with all the characters and their journey.
