Finally, after wearisome travel by train and on foot, Marita's family finds a place to live. They stand before the tiny, empty shack made of scraps of wood and bags. Some of the cracks have been filled with mud; another crack has been covered by a flattened tin can.

So they move in—with nothing but the few odds and ends they carry in the bundles on their backs.

Follow Marita through the desperate years of her childhood as illness and disease claim her family one by one, and she struggles on alone.

This true and gripping account of Marita's struggle for existence gives us a vivid glimpse into the lives of multitudes who suffered deep poverty and hardships following the series of revolutions in Mexico in the early 1900s.

But glory shines in the end.

A book that should stir every reader to compassion, thankfulness, and a deep contentment before the Lord.

Also available in Russian.
