Ti’a Dolores is teaching Josefina many new things, but Francisca worries that changing things brings them further from their mother. Josefina wonders whether learning to write will bring her away from her mother, until her aunt shows her that she can write down all the things her mother used to say.

A flood kills most of the rancho's sheep, but Tia Dolores comes up with a way to ensure that they get back on their feet. Josefina learns to weave and to read. The story and characters are interesting enough, though I can't say that Josefina's character has become very memorable to me.
