Join us as Vanessa Diffenbaugh speaks to us about her breathtaking new novel.
From the beloved "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Language of Flowers" comes her much-anticipated new novel about young love, hard choices, and hope against all odds.
For fourteen years, Letty Espinosa has worked three jobs around San Francisco to make ends meet while her mother raised her children Alex, now fifteen, and Luna, six in their tiny apartment on a forgotten spit of wetlands near the bay. But now Letty s parents are returning to Mexico, and Letty must step up and become a mother for the first time in her life.
Vanessa Diffenbaugh was born in San Francisco and raised in Chico, California. After studying creative writing and education at Stanford, she went on to teach art and writing to youth in low-income communities. She and her husband, PK, have three children and live in Monterey, California.
