Publisher's Summary

Esperanza Ortega tiene todos los tesoros que una chica pueda desear: hermosos vestidos, una linda casa llena de sirvientes en México, y la promesa de que un día llegará a presidir el Rancho como su mamá. Pero una tragedia inesperada destruye ese sueño, obligando a Esperanza y a su madre a escapar a California dónde tendrán que trabajar en una finca junto a otros mexicanos. Allí tendrá que olvidar su pasado y enfrentarse a las nuevas realidades de su vida: trabajo duro, aceptación y dificultades económicas. Esperanza descubrirá que la verdadera riqueza está en la familia y la comunidad.

[Esperanza Ortega possesses all the treasures a young girl could want: fancy dresses; a beautiful home filled with servants in Aguascalientes, Mexico; and the promise of one day rising to Mama's position and presiding over all of Rancho de las Rosas. But a sudden tragedy shatters that dream, forcing Esperanza and Mama to flee to California and settle in a Mexican farm labor camp. There, Esperanza must relinquish her hold on the past as she confronts the challenges of hard labor, acceptance by her own people, and economic difficulties brought on by the Great Depression, and ultitmately discovers the riches of family and community. Pam Muñoz Ryan eloquently portrays the Mexican workers' plight in this abundant and passionate novel that gives voice to those who have historically been denied one.]

heartwarming, engaging, and educational

Through an engaging and heartwarming narrative, the author explores the complexities of the lives of migrant workers. The storyline is so interesting that it makes this a very pleasant way to learn about the time period and cultural situation in which it takes place. The narration is well-performed with distinct voices for each character.

Note: THIS AUDIOBOOK IS IN SPANISH.

Spanish language, don't buy if you don't speak it!

Nowhere does it mention that this book is not in English. Now my ten year old can't understand this. It's a waste of $15.

wheres my refund?

when I purchased this audio book off of amazon there was no option of language, so when I purchased it I assumed it would be in English. why the hell would you not give the option of language? and there was NO heads up that I was buying a Spanish book it just said audio. I am unable to return the book so that's a waist of 10$ looking on the audible store I was able to find the English version. my problem is with the system rather than the book. in the modern age of tech why wouldn't you be able to just switch to your language of choice after you buy a book? instead of having to buy the same book twice. please fix this amazon.

Translated well

having read and listen to the book in English I was worried that it would not translate well however the translation was right on.
the story is about a young girl who is wealthy in Mexico but due to uncontrollable circumstances she finds yourself in an immigrant work camps. You see the contrast between her life in both countries.
