María Amparo Ruiz de Burton was the first female Mexican-American author to write in English. In her career she published two books: Who Would Have Thought It?

<i>Who Would Have Thought It?</i>

Who Would Have Thought It? (1872) is a semi-autobiographical novel written by María Ruiz de Burton. After a long period in which Ruiz de Burton's work was almost completely unknown, the novel was rediscovered by critics interested in the history of Chicano literature, and republished to acclaim in 1995. Yet Ruiz de Burton's life was not particularly typical of the Mexican-American experience, as she married a prominent US officer, Captain Henry S. Burton, in the aftermath of the Mexican–American War. The novel reflects her ambiguous position between the small in number Californio elite and the Anglo-American populace, which form the majority of the United States population.
