Summary: Peru 1820
Since Isabella’s mother died, the sparkle has disappeared from her father’s eyes. There are no more parties filled with dancing and laughter at the hacienda. Worst of all, the music that was her mother’s legacy has abandoned Isabella – she no longer has the heart to play the guitar.
Now there is more bad news for Isabella. Miguel, her beloved housekeeper’s son and her father’s best sheepherder, has been called for service in the mines. The work is hard and dangerous, and many men are injured or even die. Only the viceroy himself has the power to excuse Miguel from service. Can Isabella find the courage to make her wish for Miguel come true – and perhaps her wish for herself and Papa as well?
