Summary
"A Daughter's a Daughter follows three generations of women in a New Mexican family beginning with Liberata, the only daughter of the most prosperous farmer in Los Rafas. When she decides to marry a handsome opportunist, Liberata unquestioningly expects to live a happy life along the preestablished course set by her forebears, but she later discovers that her husband is abusive and unfaithful. Liberata communicates her distrust of men to her daughter, Maria, who does not understand but instead follows her mother's example and obediently conducts her life according to traditionally prescribed values. The women in the family repeat the lives of their mothers until Maria's daughter, Irene, breaks free of the pattern. In the process, she discovers and learns to value her Hispanic roots and, for the first time in the family, rebels against the oppressive gender roles of the previous generations. Finally, as Liberata lies dying, Irene discovers a shocking secret about the origin of the legacy she has been given."--Jacket
