Resource Description

Victims of a curse and exiled to work the gardens of the La Pradera estate, the Nomeolvides women must find the truth about the identity of a strange boy who appears mysteriously on the grounds one day. Stereotypes about love and gender are challenged as the truth about the boy is unraveled in this rich, magical tale about love, family, and power. “Wild Beauty” is suitable for secondary students as an independent novel selection, a literature circle choice, or as a whole-class study; in the classroom, it is also appropriate for the study of language features and literary elements and devices.
