I was glad I was finally able to read this book, as I have been interested in it for a while. Even though I liked it, I prefer a different book by Julia Alvarez - Before We Were Free. Aspects I liked included the comparisons between Mexico and the United States and the cultural portrayals. I liked how Mari was a strong character with courage and compassion and the friendship she developed with Tyler. I was confused at times who was narrating the story, as it would jump between Tyler and Mari and Mari's letters.
