DELIA'S HEART is the second part of the journey for Delia Yebarra. We first met Delia in DELIA'S CROSSING. After the death of her parents, her long-lost aunt, Tia Isabela, brings Delia to the United States and a life of luxury that Delia could only have dreamed about.
In DELIA'S HEART, Delia has managed to survive for a time living under Isabela's roof. Delia's cousin, Edward, is now at college with his friend, Jesse. Delia is attending the posh private school with her cousin, Sophia. And now, with her new friend, Fani, Delia has attracted the attention of Adan Bovio, the son of a senatorial candidate.
Still struggling to fit in at school, just when Delia thinks things are going good, something else fans the flames of gossip. It doesn't help when Delia turns down a date with Christian Taylor, one of the most popular boys at school. It doesn't help when her cousin, Edward, buys her a fancy sports car to spite his sister (her cousin), Sophia. And it certainly doesn't help when Adan accompanies Delia to a birthday party and then proceeds to snub the birthday girl.
But things may finally be looking up for Delia when her Tia Isabela starts treating her more as a daughter than her real daughter, Sophia. As long as Delia has the attention of Adan, nothing can go wrong.
But as with any V.C. Andrews' story, readers already know that there's always a dark cloud hiding somewhere. And DELIA'S HEART is no exception. When a spring break trip to Mexico with her cousin Edward and Jesse leads to the arrest of her long-lost beau, Ignacio, life for Delia returns to the days when she first made the crossing to her new home.
Can Delia have any happiness in her life? Will Adan's love be enough or will she be reunited with Ignacio? Will time find Delia living back in Mexico once and for all?
Hopefully, all of these questions and more will be answered in the final part of the trilogy, DELIA'S GIFT.
