Esmerelda’s Journey Home: A Dia de los Muertos Adventure

Nine-year-old Esmerelda tumbles into an unexpected journey that forces her to find her way home through a colorful and mysterious world in the In-Between. She is befriended by a butterfly who serves as her guide, and the pair navigate a tricky landscape of vengeful queens and dangerous twists and turns. Esmerelda examines her darkest memories and innermost desires in an effort to illuminate her path forward.

Esmerelda’s story revolves around one particular day, Mexico’s Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, a festival where the living remember the dead. While the tradition is deeply embedded in the hearts and culture of millions worldwide, Esmerelda doesn’t understand what the fuss is all about. Simply going through the motions, Esmerelda soon becomes entangled in an introspective voyage of self-discovery upon which her family and future hinge.

Written by Nicholas Beatty and narrated by Pam Atherton, this heartwarming tale offers an opportunity to explore the rich tapestry of Mexican culture and traditions. Esmerelda’s Journey Home is the first release from Booksprocket Audio.
