I was really taken by surprise with the Josefina books. I have an aversion to American Girls, and I lean heavily towards own voice. These are excellent though. This is well-researched, enjoyable historical fiction. ( )

Josefina, 9 years old, is the youngest of 4 sisters living on a rancho in New Mexico in the 1820s. Their mother died a year before and so many of their traditions remind them of her. Their grandfather who drives a caravan from Mexico City to Santa Fe with items to trade arrives with a surprise, Tia Dolores, their mother's sister.
Josefina, who isn't very brave, finds that she can be brave when she needs to be. ( )
