About this audiobook

La historia de Esmeralda Santiago comienza en la parte rural de Puerto Rico, donde sus padres y siete hermanos, en continuas luchas los unos con los otros, vivian una vida alborotada pero llena de amor y ternura. De nina, Esmeralda aprendio a apreciar como se come una guayaba, a distinguir la cancion del coqui, a identificar los ingredientes en las morcillas y a ayudar a que el alma de un bebe muerto subiero al cielo. Pero precisamente cuando Esmeralda parecia haberlo aprendido todo sobre su cultura, la llevaron a Nueva York, donde las reglas-y el idioma-eran no solo diferentes, sino tambien desconcertantes. Como Esmeralda supero la adversidad, se gano entrada a la Performing Arts High School y despues continuo a Harvard, de donde se graduo con altos honores, es el realto de la tremenda trayectoria de una mujer verdaderamente extraordinaria.
