(The first book in the Cecilia series)
A novel by Denise Gonzales Abraham and Susan Gonzales Abraham
Fourteen-year old Maria Cecilia Gonzales is a dreamer. Her books carry her far away, beyond the purple and blue mountains of the farm community she lives in - to high school and then on to a job in the big city.
As Cecilia struggles to fulfill her goals, she experiences a deep appreciation for her family and the first tender feelings of romantic love.
Susan and Denise Gonzales Abraham have woven the story of Cecilia's dreams into the months of the year, the land and the crops, and the routine life on a farm.
