    Hardcover ó Dominicana PDF µ dominicana book, Dominicana KindleEngrossing story about a 15 year old girl who is forced to marry a much older man and move to NYC where she knows no one and doesn’t speak the language It’s a story of how she grows into herself and it is beautifully told Interesting structure that sometimes doesn’t work but still the story itself and Ana the prota

    Hardcover ó Dominicana PDF µ dominicana book, Dominicana Kindle“The first time Juan Ruiz proposes I’m eleven years old skinny and flat chested I’m half asleep my frizzy hair has busted out from a rubber band and my dress is on backwards” I couldn’t help but smile as the novel opens picturing eleven year old Ana Cancion It was hard to smile when at fifteen Ana is in an arranged marriage with Juan who is thirty two She is sent with him to the US by her family with the hopes of “money and papers” and a better life She didn’t want to go and it was a pitiful sight to see what this young girl is made to endure for the sake of her family This is the immigrant experience w
