I really did enjoy reading this memoir! Elizabeth Nunez's descrption of her family, their history and of course Trinidad. After both my parents passed away I too started to think more about their lives, their childhood and long (47 years) marriage, I could really understand her relationship with her Mother as I too felt a lot of the same things she did too.
