This book moves you through a time period of the culture of Trinidad after their Independence. It covers what it was like to be a women, the life in a village, the struggle to become successful, the beauty of a culture and the look at the history of a small island nation.

Format: Paperback
Seeta is no Naipaul, but Eighteen Brothers and Sisters is an important work for Trinidadians living at home or abroad, for immigrants and for battered women. Seeta innocently exposes real life in rural Trinidad for the descendants of Indentured Indian workers. Her journey to ultimate triumph as a success story in America delves into the most complicated social issues, which are explained in innocent, engrossing short stories. I learned much and enjoyed every minute.

This true story of an immigrant who dreamed of coming to America and her story on how she made this dream come true brought tears to my eyes. To go through what she went through to chase the American dream for herself and her family is a wonderful, heartwarming story and shows that one of America's strengths are our immigrants.

The author is a personal friend of mine, and she truly is an inspiration to all of us who know her. She is so close to all her family members, even though most of them do not live in the U.S.A., and has passed on to her own children the sense of family togetherness and responsibility.

I couldn't put the book down. It's a journey that brings tears to your eyes and love to your heart. It's a beautifully written story that helps you understand the struggles of domestic violence and poverty. Read the book to see how she and her eighteen brother and sisters deal with life's challenges in Trinidad.

This true story of the struggles of a young girl as she grows into adulthood keeps the reader's constant interest. It is hard to imagine the lives, attitudes and culture of the book's characters who are a real-life family. The strength and determination of Seeta, the author, is so impressive. Her trials and tribulations, which she endures (and learns from), has the reader cheering her on throughout the book. There were tears in my eyes at the close of the memoir, which was really the beginning of a new life for Seeta.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for anyone that wants to learn about traditions and growing up in other countries. And also overcomming problems with abuse and a lot of struggles by education and hardwork. I would recommend for any young person to read this book. It's a wonderful book showing the power of womens strength, and their ability to take care of their kids even when times get rough.
