About the Novel: Esperanza Rising tells the story of a young girl who's world gets turned upside-down, and must flee to America to start a new life.
Esperanza Ortega grew up in luxury on her father's ranch in Mexico.
She had servants, nice clothes and lavish parties.
Her sheltered life comes crashing down when her father is killed by renegades while tending to a broken fence on his property.
Their home is left to Esperanza and her mother, but the land is left to her father's stepbrothers.
After their home is burned down, Esperanza, her mother and a few loyal servants flee to America to start better lives.
Unfortunately for them, it's the Great Depression and their new lives won't be so great.
Esperanza is immediately flung into poverty and struggles to adjust.
When they make it to the States, Esperanza falls into a deep depression.
When her mother becomes sick, Esperanza must grow up and learn to appreciate what she has.
This riches-to-rags story shows that it's not what you possess that bring you happiness, but the people you share it with.
