A Mexican "Grapes of Wrath," based on a family story, from the award-winning author of Riding Freedom.

Esperanza Ortega tiene todos los tesoros que una chica pueda desear: hermosos vestidos, una linda casa llena de sirvientes en Mexico, y la promesa de que un dia llegara a presidir el Rancho como su mama. Pero una tragedia inesperada destruye ese sueno, obligando a Esperanza y a su madre a escapar a California donde tendran que trabajar en una finca junto a otros mexicanos. Alli tendra que olvidar su pasado y enfrentarse a las nuevas realidades de su vida: trabajo duro, aceptacion y dificultades economicas. Esperanza descubrira que la verdadera riqueza esta en la familia y la comunidad.
