About this title

Synopsis:

Ame+a7rica Gonzales sees an opportunity to start her life anew when a Westchester family offers her a job as a live-in nanny, but despite her comparatively luxurious lifestyle, she cannot forget a painful past of resentment, abuse, and abandonment. $55,000 ad/promo. Tour.

Review:

America Gonzalez has more than her share of concerns. She is a hotel housekeeper on an island off the Puerto Rican coast with an abusive lover, a drinking mother and a 14-year-old daughter who's run off with her boyfriend. So Gonzalez takes a drastic step by taking a job as a housekeeper with an affluent couple in Westchester, New York. Running away from her problems doesn't really work, though, as new worries arise and old problems rear their ugly heads. The novel is Esmeralda Santiago's second consecutive acclaimed work, following on the heels of When I Was Puerto Rican.
