Remember to explain where the story left off: First there is dust, then the sounds of the caravan approaching and the village church bell ringing, and finally the people, animals, and carts that make up the large caravan, including soldiers, mules, oxen, and muleteers.
There are also some of the Native American and villagers walking along to meet the caravan. Francisca leans on Josefina's shoulders and stands on tiptoe to see better, asking if she loves to think about all the places the caravan has been and the things it's bringing. Josefina says yes; the caravan brings things from all over the world right up to their front door. The many members of the caravan stop between the village and rancho to set up camp; others camp closer in a shaded area near the stream.
Francisca notes that there is a tall woman next to their grandfather and wonders who she is as she is greeting their father familiarly. However, Josefina and Clara have already moved away from the window. Josefina hurries back to the kitchen and tells Ana that Papa and Abuelito are headed to the house; Ana fusses that there's so much to do before the fandango as she cleans herself up. Josefina is the first out to greet their grandfather with her sisters behind her.
Abuelito hands the reins to the woman next to him and climbs down, then greets his granddaughters warmly. He gushes about the adventures they had, saying that he is getting too old for the trips and that this is his last trip to Mexico City. Francisca takes his arm and says that he says that after every trip.
Abuelito says that he means it this time. He has brought a surprise and holds a hand out to the tall woman on the wagon. She has come to live with her parents in Santa Fe, and so he has no need to return to Mexico City. Papa welcomes her to the home. She dwells longer on Josefina and even leans in to see her face and take both her hands, as she has never met her before she was not yet born. She says she is happy to be back and it is good to see them all. Her aunt passed away this spring just before the caravan's arrival and since she had no further reason to stay, she joined the caravan to come home.
Abuelito says that their grandmother will be surprised to see Dolores when they arrive. The family goes into the sala and Josefina cannot take her eyes off her aunt. Josefina has not noticed, as she is caught up with the fact that this is her mother's sister. Abuelito begins to tell stories about the trip on the caravan; Josefina sits with her arms around his knees, happy as this reminds her of times before her mother's death.
He was glad that Dolores was coming with him and finished his business quickly. However, when packing up Dolores's things, she insisted on bringing her piano. He had insisted it was too big and heavy, but Dolores had insisted that it come along.
Abuelito had complained, but had it packed on the wagon. He grumbled about it the whole way, but Dolores has not said anything and let him fuss. When they arrived at Dead Man's Canyonthey were set upon by thieves. During the fight, the cart carrying the piano was overtaken and the oxen startled, lurching the cart into a deep gully where it crashed with a loud noise that echoed off the walls and scared off the thieves.
After that, the piano was placed in his cart and he didn't complain about it anymore—as her insistence on bringing it saved them. Josefina asks Abuelito if the piano was hurt.

Josefina asks to see it. Abuelito says that they had to rebuild the crate and it would be too much trouble to open it. Dolores kisses her father and then leads the girls out to the wagon, where the piano is in a big wooden crate. There is not much room for her hands and she cannot stand up straight.
She first plays a chord, and then a spirited tune. Josefina greatly enjoys and is especially touched by the music; it is something she has never heard before.

She barely breathes until the music stops. Josefina wants to touch the keys but is too shy to ask. Josefina says she wished the music hadn't stopped. He then says Josefina should go get ready. She says yes and takes on last look before going inside. She wishes there was something she could do to show her appreciation for the music.
In the courtyard, she thinks of a fine idea and decides to give it to her after the fandango. Abuelito has brought the sisters blue hair ribbons and Francisca has taken charge of tying them in for Josefina. Clara ties her sash and then does it again; her ribbon is already tied in. She asks if she looks all right. Josefina and Francisca are surprised as Clara generally does not worry about her appearance.
Josefina worried that Francisca might be unkind, but Francisca says that Clara looks very pretty and the blue suits her. Francisca finishes Josefina's hair and tells her to fly away, as she can tell she is anxious to leave. Josefina thanks her and leaves the room. The sun has since set and it is much cooler; there are small bonfires in the front courtyard. She hears Ana and Carmen thanking neighboring women who have come early and brought dishes.
She slips into the kitchen, gets a small water jar, and slips out again. Clara and Josefina outside the gran sala. She is careful to break near the ground without disturbing the roots.
As there aren't many flowers, Josefina has to take almost all of them. She thinks the flowers look scrawny, so she takes out her hair ribbon and ties it around the bouquet. Wanting the bouquet to be a surprise, she looks for a place to hide it. It's dark, but Josefina can tell he is smiling by his voice. He is going to formally introduce Dolores to their friends and neighbors tonight, and suggests she give the bouquet to her them. Josefina thanks him and puts the flowers under the bench in the passageway to hide them.
Guests keep arriving, greeting each other as they go to the gran salawhich is lit up with candles. The musicians start playing on their fiddles and the guests and family start dancing in a whirl of colors. Francisca is one of the fastest dancers, and looks the happiest. The older women holding the babies for the younger mothers are clapping the babies' hands in time to the music. Josefina and Clara are too young to dance in the grand sala, so they are sitting outside in the courtyard and leaning in on the windowsill to look at the dancers.
Josefina's feet are dancing with the music, though, as she cannot simply sit still. Every once in a while they can hear Abuelito retelling the story of how the piano scared off the thieves; the number of thieves gets larger with each retelling. Clara asks if she dances well, and Josefina says she is as graceful as the music. When Clara asks what that's about, Josefina says she has a surprise and to stay there. She goes to where she left the bouquet, but it is not under the bench.
She stands up and sees the jar lying on its side near the wall, and as she looks around she sees a white shape in the back courtyard—Florecita, who has broken out of her pen. Josefina almost turns to get help, but she steps on something, and soon realizes it is the remains of her bouquet—the flowers are gone and the ribbon is mud-stained. Florecita has eaten the flowers. She has one hollyhock her mouth and all the other flowers have been completely destroyed.
Florecita looks at Josefina, very satisfied with herself. She hisses that Florecita is an awful animal and has ruined everything. Too mad to be scared of the goat, Josefina walks up to Florecita and yanks the flower stems out of her mouth and swats her with them angrily, saying that she hates her for killing and eating the flowers. She shoves Florecita and then takes a horn and drags her all the way to her pen and slams the gate shut, saying that she will hate her forever. She then runs all the way back to the bench and slumps on it, holding the ruined stems and fighting her tears.
Josefina, hardly able to talk, explains what happened with the bouquet and the flowers. Josefina had cared for them but since Florecita has torn them all up, they're dead and there will never be any more flowers. Josefina takes her, saying nothing is left.
The flowers will live. She asks Josefina if she likes caring for flowers and Josefina nods. Josefina explains about the flowers again. He then says they should go inside to eat, or Ana will never forgiver them for not eating what she's prepared.
Josefina follows her father and aunt into the gran sala, and thinks that she did get the courage to stand up to Florecita, but not from the caravan—and that would have never happened if she hadn't picked the bouquet for Dolores. She suddenly gets an idea—quick as a flash—and the idea comes all through the night and the next day and grows into a hope.
Josefina's Idea The next morning Josefina is up earlier than normal—she quietly rolls up her sheepskins and blanket that make up her bed and goes outside. The moon is still out, but very low in the sky. Josefina goes to the kitchen, where Carmen is working on grinding the corn for the morning meal while her husband Miguel starts the kitchen fires. She nods to Josefina and gives her a water jar to fill, as she does every morning.
She then skips down to the stream. The tune that Dolores played stays in her head all day as she does her early morning chores, and she even hears the tune in the church bell that rings for prayers at seven a. Josefina takes her through the orchard, past the cornfields, and to the stream where they fill their water jugs to water the kitchen garden.

Dolores has something to praise everywhere she goes, including the weaving room where she praises Clara's dyed wools. She shows Clara a faster way to knit a sock's heel and Francisca how to sew a patch so it barely shows.
She starts digging the holes for the seeds and says that Ana has a lot of responsibilities. Dolores says that she has her sisters to help her, and Josefina nods slowly and says that they try. Ana is not forceful enough and Josefina tries to joke away the arguments but it doesn't always work.
She tells a story about when she took her sister's best sash and lost it—which angered her sister so much she didn't speak to her for days but finally forgave her. Tia Dolores gives Josefina her garnet necklace. Ana is pleased by the brightly colored silk rebozo she has received. Clara has received scissors and some sewing needles, pleasing her as the gift is both lovely and practical. The sisters sit in a corner of the front courtyard near the kitchen. Ana's sons are in the kitchen with Carmen; the sisters are peeling back the husks from roasted corn to braid into a string and dry.
Clara says she is sensible and hardworking, which is praise from her; Francisca says that sounds dull and that she thinks of her as elegant and graceful. The other three are too surprised to say anything, and The sisters work with the corn. Josefina goes on that she could help them the same she did today. Francisca says she won't stay as she is used to a grand life and won't want to be on a mere rancho.
Josefina points out that she enjoyed hearing about the rancho when Abuelito came to visit, and that she doesn't act fancy or put on airs. Ana says that she probably came home to get married and start a family of her own. Josefina says she doesn't have to stay forever, just a few months—and that they are her family. Josefina's heart sinks as she knows Clara is right.
