Josefina's family holds a party to celebrate the end of the Christmas season. Josefina and her sisters handle all the preparations, and the party is a great success. But the girls' pleasure turns to shock the next morning when T'a Dolores announces she's leaving the rancho. Josefina and her sisters are sure T'a Dolores belongs with them and Papá, but their efforts to convince her only make matters worse. There's one person who could persuade T'a Dolores to stay--but how can Josefina get him to help?

In this entry in one strand of the American Girls series (Meet Josefina, 1997, etc.), Josefina is approaching her tenth birthday and has decided she wants to be a healer like her godmother, Ta Magdalena. Participating in family and community activities - raising a baby goat, helping to replaster the church, and helping Ta Magdalena - take up much of her time. Near the end she is given the opportunity to prove her ability as a healer when her friend, Mariana, is bitten by a rattlesnake. This cheerful story is packed with historical tidbits. The adorable baby goat will appeal to the target audience, and although the story can be bland, it is well-paced, and enhanced by lovely realistic illustrations.
