Josefina Montoya is a ten-year-old girl living in New Mexico during 1824. In this book, Josefina and her sisters prepare for Christmas, a grand celebration in New Mexico, made all the more special by the towns use of the Christmas altar cloth made by Josefina's late mother who had died 2 years previous. However, when the altar cloth is brought it, they find out that the flood damaged the cloth. The girls rally round to fix the cloth...and perhaps fix themselves at the same time. Josefina and her three sisters find that participating in the traditions of Las Posadas helps keep memories of their Mama alive.
