I absolutely loved this book. The twists and turns that Virginia's life takes is an amazing journey of self discovery. This story is even more amazing since it is based on a true story. It's sad that something like this had to happen to Virginia but at the same time she persevered and became a better woman for it. Laura Resau did an amazing job telling this story. I was never quite sure what would happen next in Virginia's story or if she would ever see her family again. The way that Virginia was kept down and frightened by the mestizo couple that took her is terrible. The fact that she was abused and basically a slave since she wasn't paid is even worse. I am glad that this story was given a voice and I recommend it to anyone who wants to read something that will inspire them in life.
