Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is a fascinating, if problematic, account of the early married life of the author's parents, a young Mexican American couple living in California and coping with the economic and social effects of the Great Depression. Continuing the family saga he began in Rain of Gold, Villase?or tells of his father, Salvador, an extremely moral man who, paradoxically, bootlegs liquor to earn a living. His young bride, Lupe, who is beautiful and intelligent but also conventional and na?ve, is kept ignorant of Salvador's livelihood until she is pregnant with their first child a dilemma the reader will be anxious to see resolved. However, the book delves too much and too often into private prayers and their alleged responses from God, the Virgin Mary, and a host of intervening angels. The theory of 13 senses is intriguing, but one grandmother's know-it-all spirituality becomes tiresome after its fifth or sixth intrusion into the narrative. Villase?or is at his best when portraying the realm of social reality, including the effects of the Mexican Revolution. While libraries will not need yet another spiritual instruction manual, this book merits space on the shelves of most public libraries for the author's skill in depicting his parents' circumstances and social evolution.

This book grips you and does not let go until you finish reading it; then you are asking for more.

I read Rain of Gold on the recommendation of a friend who taught high school English in northern CA. She said it was on her optional reading list for students and that the hispanic kids who decided to read it, despite its length, all came back to her with glowing reviews - telling how it was the first book they'd ever read that was that long and how they couldn't put it down it was so good. Being a Spanish speaker, with native Spanish speaking students and friends, I was intrigued. Loved the book - simply loved it. So when I saw that the author had continued the story of his family in Trece Sentidos, I had to find out more about their lives and their stories. I was not disappointed. Read the second book in Spanish - though it was written in English. Trece Sentidos feels a bit more long-winded than Rain of Gold. There are times when the grandmother goes on and on and on. But you love the character/s and are willing to forgive. There is some repition of history for those who did not read Rain of Gold, but it's a good refresher too. I highly recommend this book. Loved the photographs too. Thank you, Victor Villasenor, for sharing a wonderful family history! Would love to see the ranch too, and think of it every time I'm visiting family in/around San Diego.

I love this book; however,for me Rain of Gold was better. Victor Villasenor is one of my favorite authors because of his unusual style. His memoir Burro Genius was fabulous. My son is very dyslexic and it reminds me of him.
