Front Cover
Author House, Jun 30, 2010 - Biography & Autobiography - 112 pages

"What Herrera-Anderson has done is lay bare the alma, the Latin soul. Her stories show how such nurture, encouragement and affirmation, at critical moments of childhood, help the human transcend the forces that could have kept one down. "
                                      - L. Griffiths, East Valley Tribune

"This gem of a book manages to be as tender as it is devastating.Herrera's disarming honesty draws readers into her world, a world where pain and love share equal time. Many will see themselves in these stories, others may, for the first time, gain an inside look at
into the ravages of poverty and the survival of the human spirit."-
                                    Dr. Ursula Casanova, Arizona State University
