For two such amazing women to team up and produce a book of such emotional magnitude is a true “gift” for readers. Laura Resau is an award-winning author, and Maria Farinango is an actress, radio show performer, and dancer. Together they have written a book based on the true story of an incredible young woman who must find her own path in life, while trying to deal with two cultures that are comprised of completely opposite beliefs.

Virginia, our heroine, has an incredibly large family living in a small home located in a village of indigenas. This particular “class” of people are the hard-workers - the people who slave in the fields all day long, even as children, to support their families. The class of people that seem to “rule” over their society are referred to as the mestizos, which are made up of descendants of Spain. They seem to think nothing of calling Virginia’s people stupid Indians while they go about their business and look down on the hard-workers that make life possible.
