This is my first time doing this, but I loved the first chapter of this book! I can totally picture the sparring professors debating at dinner. I can't wait to read the next chapter!

This is my first e-mail book also and this book has caught my attention immediately. There are so many aspects to this character already. I will definitely read the rest of this novel - it has me hooked!

I'm interested in the character's profession, not the character herself, but it's holding my attention so far.

As a Latina, I am proud and happy :) to see you are enjoying this book... I am going to buy this book and share it with my sisters. If you are interested in reading other Latinas, let me know... you might try Sandra Cisneros. Disfruta! (Enjoy!)
P.S. It is my first time too!

I like the author's style, the characters, and the hint of a mystery in the plot. I've placed a hold at my library.
Enjoying this book

Great reading so far. Curious to know about Pancha. Who is she, and how will Nita get the info from her ailing dad that will uncover the mystery. This is not only an engrossing mystery in its own right, but a view into the life of a divorced woman of Guatamalan roots who has been denied knowledge of her ancestry, which, after all, gives one his/her identity. Anxious to know how all will be resolved.

I finally caught up on my reading today... I am really enjoying this book, and would like to read the whole thing. I really like how book club selections are often multi-cultural. Another good book about a Latina is "Amaerica's Dream." The only concern I have is how she comes across as a marital therapist. I am a graduate student in marriage and family therapy at the University of South Carolina. Her not listening to her clients does not cast therapists in a very positive light. It is part of her job to be paying close attention to what's going on during the session. The fact that her client picked up on it, and then she didn't admit that she was preoccupied is also alarming. I thought the embroiderred pilows was cool, though. Just some thoughts.
