Terms in this set (8)
The main characters are Mama, Papa Enrique, Patria, Minerva, Dede.
The minor character is Padre Ignacio.
This is about heroes and endurance with courage. They have compassion for each other under a tense time of an unpopular leader, Rafael Trujillo. First, they laugh nervously about life and the future in a country with bad economic conditions. Then, Papa starts to predict each girl's future. For example, he predicts that Dede will be a millionaire. He is asked by Patria and Minerva what will happen to them and her mother interrupts them. Her mother says sharply that Padre Ignacio would not approve. She says she knows more than they think she knows. Finally, Papa just makes a joke that he doesn't believe in it either. Dede listened and thought about what they said. She thought about math and how when you multiply by zero, you still get zero and a thousand heartaches.
