Award-winning author! Great book! Delightful and easy to read. The author has a humorous, realistic and self-deprecating way of looking at her experiences as the American wife of a Mexican man. She shares insights into the differences between Mexican and American people, traditions and culture, insights which come from a full and interesting life in Monterrey spanning a number of years in the 1900's. The author was born in 1904 and was still living in her nineties! Anyone who has contact with and an interest in Mexicans in the U.S. would find the book culturally enlightening. A must read -- like 'Having Our Say' -- if you like true stories, well-told, that refresh and renew your memories of the recent and distant past.Was this review helpful?
