This is a story of a girl named Aurora whose mother was pregnant with her when the family migrated from Mexico to the United States during the Mexican Revolution of 1910, and who like many other immigrants, were completely unprepared for the hardships they would have to endure. With limited skills, and no knowledge of English, they would embark in a life-changing adventure to a foreign country that would prove disastrous in many ways for her.

During Aurora's formative years, most family secrets were dealt with complete silence when questioned by her. Over the years she learned that during their journey to the United States her sister had died and had been buried in the desert and that her real father had been separated from the family before they reached their destination.

The lack of an adequate explanation as to why as an infant she was taken to live with total strangers for a few years, and later as a young child, was also permitted to travel to Los Angeles with her alcoholic godfather to stay with his family every summer, contributed to her feelings of not really belonging. Little did she know that when she attended a neighbor's wedding when she was eighteen years old, she would meet a total stranger that would change her life forever.
