Valley of the Moon: the Diary of María Rosalia de Milagros Rating:

Mari­a Rosalia is a Mestizo servant in a Spanish home. Orphaned years ago, she and her brother Domingo work on a ranch run by the stern Senor Medina. Maria's writing captures the intense tradition and culture of the Spanish as she observes the war that Alta California ultimately loses to the Americans.

"Garland has cast Maria as a sturdy heroine, whose love for Alta California infuses her story with a strong sense of place, and the historical details are both accurate and interestingly woven into the story." -- Booklist
