Publisher's Summary

What happens when a thoroughly 20th-century American lady journalist becomes a Mexican señora in the 1930s provincial Monterrey? She finds herself-sometimes hilariously-coping with servants, daily food allowances, bargaining, and dramatic Latin emotions. In this vivid autobiography, Newbery Award winning author Elizabeth Borton de Treviño brings to life her experiences with the culture and the faith of a civilization so close to the United States, but rarely appreciated or understood. This special young people's edition presents the humor and the insights of a remarkable woman and her contact with an era which is now past, but not to be forgotten.

Great story for the whole family

I listened to this along with my teens. We all enjoyed it. Now I want to read more from this author. Endearing account of life in Mexico in 1930s.
