Sheds light and compassion on illegal immigration

on 1/20/2008

"Journey of Hope-Memoirs of a Mexican Girl" is so compelling, I read it in one night. This memoir chronicles a little girl's childhood recollections of life growing up in a small, poor Mexican town in the 1960's. The author writes in the present-tense beginning as five-year-old Rosalina describes the sights, smells, tastes and sometimes exciting escapades in her life, mixed with tales of startling deprivation and chilling abuse. In spite of hopeless surroundings, lack of resources, and destructive family influences, this child manages to develop an early insight that there is a world of possibilities and hope beyond her town, and within her reach. Her love of learning and refusal to accept the predictable path of her predecessors paves the way to academic achievement and success unprecedented among her family, and a permanent move to the United States. This memoir provides graphic images of poverty with harrowing sequences of domestic violence and a child's terror. At other times, it's a story of remarkable optimism and courage; a young girl's ability to fully appreciate the small delights of life, like a soft new dress or a delicious piece of chocolate. This is an inspiring memoir of determination, accomplishment, and genuine gratitude.
