What Is To Come? In this sixth book of Josefina's series many new occurrences will come to Josefina and her family. Plenty of twists and turns are in this storyline to keep readers interested in the changes that are in Josefina's future. Beautiful, detailed color illustrations add to the storyline and make it vivid and alive. **Great book series for young girls that want to explore other cultures. "A Peek Into The Past" at the end of the book offers fascinating facts about life in the early 1800s. For example, the history of the Sante Fe Trail, Mexico's independence from Spain, and how a traditional home on a New Mexican rancho would have looked like are in this section. This is a quote from this section: page 63 - 64, "...the Mexican War was fought farther south and west until 1848. When the war ended, the United States had taken almost all the land that is now New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado, as well as parts of other states."

...are supre to lift yours as well. This is one of the best Josefina books. It made me so sad when I finished the book. Josefina seems to have quite some problem keeping her hopes up. Tia Dorles is leaving thier ranch and the sisters are upset.
