Gabriela and The Widow is a different story about growing up. It’s about Gabriela, whose village is raided and loses her mother when she’s just thirteen years old. She has no family left due to this brutal massacre. Who will help her grow into a woman?
After the massacre, Gabriela’s journey through life begins. Walking to the nearest village, her mother dies in the Mexican jungle. Gabriela has to bury her along the side of the footpath, and then continues on the arduous journey. When she arrives, she finds herself a LaPatrona and is nothing more than a slave. The LaPatrona makes a deal with the Scarfaced Man to sell her for sex. Somehow, Gabriela escapes this but her fate in life seems to get worse and worse…until she starts to work for The Widow.

The Widow is a dying ninety – two year old woman named La Viuda and Gabriela is her caretaker. Not only does Gabriela do all the cooking, cleaning and the personal care for La Viuda, she works daily with La Viuda on The List. But La Viuda is kind to her. Something that Gabriela hasn’t known since her parents were alive.

The List is a fascinating journey through La Viuda’s life and she wants it written up before her death. Day after day, Gabriela compiles boxes of slips of paper, photographs, coins, letters and more. She listens to La Viuda’s stories about each object and writes the story down. Slowly, Gabriela gets the list written in proper order. In the process, La Viuda teaches her to be a woman and soon the two are one.
This recently published book (January 15, 2013) fascinated me with all the detail written in the book. The seamless mixing of Spanish and English helped bring this young adult book to life! Even though Gabriela and The Widow starts when Gabriela is thirteen years old, I wouldn’t recommend this book for that age since the real story starts when she’s nineteen years old.
