Time Period: 1934 - 1935

Rosa Sanchez's parents took a chance on their future by emigrating from Mexico to the United States. Now, the ten-year-old takes a chance of her own. She wants to go to school! That's not easy for an immigrant girl in the Texas Panhandle of 1935—and it's even more challenging when the terrible, black-clouded storms of the "Dust Bowl" strike. Can Rosa hold to her God-given dream of a good education while her family battles for survival on the windswept plains?

This novel for eight- to twelve-year-old girls features historical events to teach compelling lessons in American history and the Christian faith.
