This book has inspierd my heart because its about work. Something else is that Esperanza was rich but loved a poor man. The final thing is that her father died and I suspect that her own uncle killed him. I recommend this book because it is about feelings and drama.
This book is great. Anyone who hasn't read it should. This book touched my heart. My brother thought it was a boring book, but once he read it he admited he was wrong. So read it, you'll love it.
I think at some parts in the book it was very sad. But, I'm glad they thought of a way to get away from Tio Luis and Esperanza's mom didn't have to marry him and Abuelita got there safely because of Miquel's help!
