Reading: Mary Romero “The Maid’s Daughter”

The Maid’s Daughter: Living Inside and Outside the American Dream” follows the life of “Olivia,” the daughter of a Mexican maid, who lives with her mom in the LA home of her wealthy employers, the “Smiths.” While her mother remains the help, Olivia is welcomed into the family’s fold. Acceptance into their world where Olivia perpetually feels she doesn’t belong, mixed with her hunger to discover her Mexican roots, provokes a sense of confusion of what it means to be both a second-generation immigrant and an American. Romero’s previous work includes “Maid in the U.S.A.”
