About the Book

En la secuela tan esperada al best seller del New York Times Grabada en la arena, Regina Calcaterra se une a Rosie, su hermana menor, para relatar su historia desgarradora, aunque finalmente triunfante, de una niñez de abusos y supervivencia.

La desgarradora historia de dos hermanas y su supervivencia, desde las calles de Long Island hasta las granjas de Idaho. 

Eran cinco hijos de cinco padres diferentes y una madre alcohólica que los dejaba solos para que sobrevivieran como pudieran durante semanas. Sin embargo, durante esos momentos difíciles, se tenían la una a la otra. Rosie, la más joven, era cuidada y protegida por Regina, su hermana mayor. Cookie, su madre, irrumpe de forma inesperada en sus vidas «como un huracán, destroza sin que le importe nada de lo que se encuentre a su paso».

Pero cuando Regina se emancipa aun siendo menor de edad y escapa, sus hermanos son separados. Y Rosie se da cuenta, luego de que Cookie la secuestra de un hogar temporal, que lo único peor que ser abandonada por su madre, es vivir en su presencia. Maltratada físicamente, abusada emocionalmente y obligada a trabajar en la granja donde vive Cookie en Idaho, Rosie se niega a darse por vencida. Como su hermana Regina, Rosie tiene una fortaleza incalculable ante aquella adversidad inimaginable; la suficiente para sacarla de Idaho y de aquella pesadilla.

Las memorias de Rosie, llenas de madurez y de gracia, continúan la cautivadora historia que comenzó con Grabada en la arena, un testamento sorprendente, pero profundamente conmovedor de la hermandad y valentía indomable.

In the highly anticipated sequel to her New York Times bestseller Etched in Sand, Regina Calcaterra pairs with her youngest sister Rosie to tell Rosie’s harrowing, yet ultimately triumphant, story of childhood abuse and survival.

A Harrowing Story of Sisters and Survival from the Streets of Long Island to the Farms of Idaho.

In the highly anticipated sequel to her New York Times bestseller Etched in Sand, Regina Calcaterra pairs with her youngest sister Rosie to tell Rosie’s harrowing, yet ultimately triumphant, story of childhood abuse and survival.

They were five kids with five different fathers and an alcoholic mother who left them to fend for themselves for weeks at a time. Yet through it all they had each other. Rosie, the youngest, is fawned over and shielded by her older sister, Regina. Their mother, Cookie, blows in and out of their lives “like a hurricane, blind and uncaring to everything in her path.”  But when Regina emancipates herself as a minor and escapes, her siblings are separated. And as Rosie discovers after Cookie kidnaps her from foster care, the one thing worse than being abandoned by her mother is living in Cookie’s presence. Beaten physically, abused emotionally, and forced to labor at the farm where Cookie settles in Idaho, Rosie refuses to give in. Like her sister Regina, Rosie has an unfathomable strength in the face of unimaginable hardship—enough to propel her out of Idaho and out of a nightmare. Filled with maturity and grace, Rosie’s memoir continues the compelling story begun in Etched in Sand—a shocking yet profoundly moving testament to sisterhood and indomitable courage.
