This book took me through so many emotions; from pride in my heritage, nostalgia as a former folklorico dancer, anger and rage at racism and prejudice exhibited by ignorant people, to sadness at the very real and too-often ocurring stories of being satisfied with just getting by. These four women went through so much, yet persevered in their own way without every really thinking of themselves as victims.
This book is an interesting read for those who don't identify with the culture, and it well most certainly hit home for those who do.
