Plot Summary: The night before Esperanza's birthday, her father doesn't come home from the fields. Worried, beloved servants go out looking for him and come home with awful news. He was murdered by bandits. Her home is left to her and her mother, but the land is not allowed to be owned by a women, so it's willed to Esperanza's uncle. With greed and power as his motivation, Tio Luis offers to marry Ramona so that she can continue to live in the house, but threatens to send Esperanza to boarding school. Ramona refuses the offer. Later, their house burns down. With nowhere to live and fear of Tio Luis controlling them, heartbroken Ramona and Esperanza sneak to the United States, with the help of their former servants. They must leave Abuelita behind, who injured her ankle getting out of the burning house. How will Esperanza adapt to live as poor person, and without her father?

"The author of Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride (1999) and Riding Freedom (1997) again approaches historical fiction, this time using her own grandmother as source material. In 1930, Esperanza lives a privileged life on a ranch in Aguascalientes, Mexico. But when her father dies, the post-Revolutionary culture and politics force her to leave with her mother for California. Now they are indebted to the family who previously worked for them, for securing them work on a farm in the San Joaquin valley. Esperanza balks at her new situation, but eventually becomes as accustomed to it as she was in her previous home, and comes to realize that she is still relatively privileged to be on a year-round farm with a strong community. She sees migrant workers forced from their jobs by families arriving from the Dust Bowl, and camps of strikers—many of them US citizens—deported in the “voluntary repatriation” that sent at least 450,000 Mexicans and Mexican-Americans back to Mexico in the early 1930s. Ryan’s narrative has an epic tone, characters that develop little and predictably, and a romantic patina that often undercuts the harshness of her story. But her style is engaging, her characters appealing, and her story is one that—though a deep-rooted part of the history of California, the Depression, and thus the nation—is little heard in children’s fiction. It bears telling to a wider audience. (author’s note) (Fiction. 9-15)" www.kirkusreviews.com
