In El Nogalar, Maite and her daughters can't stand the idea of losing their family's home and beloved orchard
to developers--but their time and money are running out. Despite warnings from her family and friends, Maite ignores her declining fortune as ardently as she has ignored the social consequences of the Mexican Revolution. Set in present-day Northern Mexico and sprinkled with Spanish, Spanglish and Espanglés, El Nogalar (Pecan Orchard) is a comical and moving story about the choice between adapting to the changing
world and getting left behind.
