Jennifer Clement’s “Prayers for the Stolen” is going to be one of the stand out books of 2014. It tells the story of Lady Di , a young Mexican girl who ,like so many, is victim of the brutality of Mexican Drug Lords’ whims. It is an astonishing book that manages wit and tenderness while describing the harrowing lives of innocent village children. This Lady Di will become one of the literary characters of the decade.
