I decided to pin a picture of "Santa Lucia," a catholic saint Eva mentions to be her favorite. I thought this was pretty unlikely as well because usually the situation when it comes to a very religious relative, the child would give anything to not have to hear about the hundreds of biblical stories. Where in Eva's case it is just the opposite. She wants to learn more and i believe the author did this to show just how special and different-minded Eva Luna is.
