The Memory Keeper is the story of Tomas Romero, a native of the Acjachemen band, whom the Spanish renamed Juaneno. Born in 1820 in San Juan Capistrano, Tomas attends the mission school where, in addition to the catechism, he learns to read, write, and cipher-uncommon for the Indians in San Juan at the time. Because Tomas assists the padres, he becomes aware of the world outside the small religious community. During his lifetime, he experiences the rule of Spain, Mexico, and finally, the United States. He survives drought, floods, plagues, the secularization of the mission property, and its return to the church. He also marries, raises two children, makes many friends, and provides assistance to the priests. He becomes co-owner of a mercantile. Although his story is rich with local history, it is, in the end, an engaging family saga with characters who come alive on the pages."
