As a child, Esperanza has to mature by leaps and bounds to face the adversity that affects her family and that forces them to flee to the United States. The rebirth of the protagonist, who emerges from the crisis as result of re-evaluating the human condition in difficult times, is admired.
Esperanza Ortega possesses all the treasures a young girl could want: fancy dresses; a beautiful home filled with servants in Aguascalientes, Mexico; and the promise of one day rising to Mama's position and presiding over all of Rancho de las Rosas.
But a sudden tragedy shatters that dream, forcing Esperanza and Mama to flee to California and settle in a Mexican farm labor camp.
There, Esperanza must relinquish her hold on the past as she confronts the challenges of hard labor, acceptance by her own people, and economic difficulties brought on by the Great Depression, and ultitmately discovers the riches of family and community.
