My review about Queen of Water:
I give the Queen of Water 4 stars. The setting is 20th century in Ecuador, South America. It starts when a little 7 year old native named Virginia is given to mestizos to work as their servant. Virginia has to cook, clean, and tend to the mestizos’ babies. Virginia is treated badly by the woman of the family. She is told that she is worthless and will never succeed in life, but Virginia yearns to learn and go to school. As she gets older, the family seems to get stricter because they don’t want her to run off and leave them. Will she be able escape the “prison” and get an education? Will she be able to that she isn’t worthless and that she can succeed without the mestizos?
