Thirteen Senses: A Memoir by Victor Villasenor

A daring memoir of love, magic, adventure, and miracles, Victor Villaseñor's Thirteen Senses continues the exhilarating family saga that began in the widely acclaimed bestseller Rain of Gold, delivering a stunning story of passion, family, and the forgotten mystical senses that stir within us all.

Thirteen Senses begins with the fiftieth wedding anniversary of the aging former bootlegger Salvador and his elegant wife, Lupe. When asked by a young priest to repeat the sacred ceremonial phrase "to honor and obey," Lupe surprises herself and says. "No, I will not say 'obey'. How dare you! You don't talk to me like this after fifty years of marriage and I now knowing what I know!" After the hilarious shock of Lupe's rejection of the ceremony, the Villaseñor family is forced to examine the love that Lupe and Salvador have shared for so many years -- a universal, gut-honest love that will eventually energize and inspire the couple into old age.

I just finished reading this wonderful memoir by Victor Villasenor and I cannot express how profoundly this book has affected me. This is a must read for everyone...I feel like it has changed my life and my way of thinking. I have the utmost respect for this author and although I have not read his previous books, I am ordering Rain of Gold today in hopes that it will be as incredible as Thirteen Senses. His characters are complex, humorous, and totally inspirational. The female characters are strong and almost magical in their perception. This is a male author who obviously has the utmost respect for women. This is a book that is hard to put down...

I enjoyed the life of Salvador and Lupe and thier life journey. I enjoyed it beacause of the reality it spoke of. We should all be so lucky to retain so much family history.
