Atrapada entre dos mundos

Delia Yebarra survived a treacherous desert crossing to protect her friend Ignacio from murder charges. Now, the time has come once again to leave her tiny Mexican hometown: Delia's cousin Edward convinces her to return to his world of wealth and privilege in Palm Springs, and soon Delia, a beautiful and popular senior at an exclusive private school, is living the American dream. But Delia will quickly discover that high society has a very dark underside.

Delia's malicious cousin Sophia is sparking horrific rumors with Delia at their center. Racing to do damage control, Delia's mortified aunt Isabela introduces her troublesome niece to the handsome son of a wealthy Mexican American politician.

DELIA'S HEART is the second part of the journey for Delia Yebarra. We first met Delia in DELIA'S CROSSING. After the death of her parents, her long-lost aunt, Tia Isabela, brings Delia to the United States and a life of luxury that Delia could only have dreamed about. In DELIA'S HEART, Delia has managed to survive for a time living under Isabela's roof. Delia's cousin, Edward, is now at college with his friend, Jesse. Delia is attending the posh private school with her cousin, Sophia. And now, with her new friend, Fani, Delia has attracted the attention of Adan Bovio, the son of a senatorial candidate. Still struggling to fit in at school, just when Delia thinks things are going good, something else fans the flames of gossip. It doesn't help when Delia turns down a date with Christian Taylor, one of the most popular boys at school. It doesn't help when her cousin, Edward, buys her a fancy sports car to spite his sister (her cousin), Sophia. And it certainly doesn't help when Adan accompanies Delia to a birthday party and then proceeds to snub the birthday girl. But things may finally be looking up for Delia when her Tia Isabela starts treating her more as a daughter than her real daughter, Sophia. As long as Delia has the attention of Adan, nothing can go wrong. But as with any V.C. Andrews' story, readers already know that there's always a dark cloud hiding somewhere. And DELIA'S HEART is no exception. When a spring break trip to Mexico with her cousin Edward and Jesse leads to the arrest of her long-lost beau, Ignacio, life for Delia returns to the days when she first made the crossing to her new home. Can Delia have any happiness in her life? Will Adan's love be enough or will she be reunited with Ignacio? Will time find Delia living back in Mexico once and for all? Hopefully, all of these questions and more will be answered in the final part of the trilogy, DELIA'S GIFT.

After living in the United States for a few years (see DELIA¿S CROSSING), poor Mexican girl Delia Yebarra still feels like a stranger in a strange land. She returned to her homeland briefly with Ignacio Davila after his role on the death of the person who raped Delia was known by everyone. Everyone but his family and Delia thinks he is dead and Ignacio wanted Delia to return to her Aunt Isabelle¿s Palm Springs estate. Isabelle believes her niece is an impoverished wetback, whom she treats like a servant rather than a relative. Her son Edward blackmails his mom into giving Isabella similar opportunities as his sister Sophie has.

Sophie hates Delia while is also jealous of as important people seem to always defend her. She tries to destroy her cousin by telling her mom lies and spreading rumors that Delia cannot disprove. When Adam Bovio starts paying attention to Delia, Isabella is thrilled because his family is rich high society starting with his father running for senator. Outraged and envious Sophie vows to send Delia back to Mexico anyway she can.

The lifestyle of the children of the wealthy prominent high society families come across as vapid, causing trouble a mainstay to keep the ennui abated. Delia lived a simple life in Mexico so has major adjustments to being part of the rich and famous crowd while also wondering if she is running from her roots. Readers will admire and like this conflicted person and hope she finds what she wants. Her female cousin and aunt are over the top of the Sierras as villainesses and the story line somewhat mirrors the first tale; yet fans of V.C. Andrews will enjoy this fine entry and look forward to the next Delia Cinderella like story.
