Recent release “Maria’s Life in Guatemala and USA” from Page Publishing author Maria M. Torres is a compelling memoir that describes the hardships, mischievousness, and happiness of the author’s childhood, along with her memories with her parents, five brothers, and four sisters.

Maria M. Torres has completed her new book “Maria’s Life in Guatemala and USA”: a gripping and potent memoir that shares the author’s journey through her humble beginnings, her adaptation to a new society, and her successful achievements.

Author Maria M. Torres was born in Mataquescuintla, a small town in Guatemala surrounded by high mountains. She was raised on her grandparents’ farm. Maria’s family was poor, which was one of the reasons she could only attend school for two years. However, she was smart and dreamed that someday she would be somebody. The best thing that happened to Maria was to immigrate to the United States of America, where she met some genuine people who helped her to become the person she is now. In the beginning, she worked as a nanny for a famous family in Malibu, California. Later, she attended night school to learn English and also enrolled in a beauty school to become a beautician, an occupation she has been practicing for the last forty-five years. Maria is a hard worker and a humble, honest, and caring person. She currently lives in Westchester, California.

Maria begins her story, sharing, “I had a wonderful life growing up in Guatemala, with my parents, five brothers, four sisters, and my niece Lily. We were very poor, but in our house, there was love and understanding. My mother’s name was Catalina. She was a beautiful and special lady. She was petite and slender, with fair skin and a pointed nose and long wavy black hair. She was a saint. She was always concerned about others. She was born in a small picturesque town named Palencia. It sits in a small green valley surrounded by beautiful mountains and wildflowers. She once told me after all those years that Palencia never changed that much. It kept its natural beauty. From there, her family moved 150 miles away to Mataquescuintla, where she met my father, Romulo, and they fell in love. They were both very young. She was only fifteen, and my dad, twenty. My father was slender and tall with a dark complexion; he was a wonderful, very honest, and hardworking man.”
