Wow. I don't know what else to say. This book was...beautiful. Lupita's life was a nightmare, but she was persistent, ever hopeful. I don't know how. This book conveyed such strong emotions. Parts of it were so sad, I almost cried. I can hardly describe this book because it had such strong feelings in the writing. It had too much feeling to put into words. Under the Mesquite is definitely one of the best book's I've ever read. This book is a gift to the world of literature.
