an indigenous girl growing in Ecaudor. At around 5-6 years old (the precious age couldn't be determined), Virginia is sold to a mestizo (upper middle class) family. Even though Virginia escapes the impoverished conditions of the her family farm, she must withstand abuse and discrimination before reaching her full potential as an adult. This biography is a fitting and inspiring read by offering another perspective on Hispanic life.
