Editorial Reviews


"Engaging, compelling and extremely moving."  -Artisan Book Reviews
Sain't Ramona: Life and Other Injuries by Ramona VargasCastillo is a wonderful, uncomplaining memoir of a woman whoexperienced both abandonment and abuse and her journey out of it. Starting witha warm and authentic look at her ancestors, Ramona then unfolds her movingstory with calm recollection.  The history is interesting, her lifeexperience moving and the ending is powerful and inspiring.
This wonderful memoir has three parts to it.  Thefirst is a look into Ramona's family history which is fascinating andcharming.  Her grandfather Cayo, born in 1904 did all he could,working tirelessly for his family.  In 1915, he walked his family outof Mexico, crossing the Rio Grande River and came to America.  Laterhe returns to Mexico.  He had several children, one of them beingTrine - who is Ramona's mother.  Trine's life story is alsointeresting and reading how she worked so hard to make something for herselfwas quite inspiring.  The second part of the book is Ramona's life todate.  Now, having once admired Trine and her efforts to make a lifefor her and her family, I now grew to find her a woman I would rather notmeet.  For a reason known only to her, Trine takes an instant disliketo her daughter Ramona.  Ramona is then neglected, abandoned and evenwhen brought back into the fold of the family years later, she is treated as anoutcast.  Life was not to improve for Ramona for manyyears.  Marrying Horace becomes a complicated existence as he slowlyturns to abuse.  However, the third aspect is the ending which is souplifting and inspirational.  Here, Ramona reaches out to women whomight be experiencing abuse and offers them insights into believing inthemselves.  I found it very emotional.  Once I startedthis book I found it impossible to put down, I was totally gripped by thiswoman's moving life story.
Ramona Vargas Castillo has written avery moving, fascinating and inspiring autobiography that covers neglect andabuse without focusing on the pain, presenting her life just as itwas.   Her life story is engaging, compelling and extremelymoving.  Sain't Ramona: Life and Other Injuriesby Ramona Vargas Castillo is a moving,engrossing and must read memoir and recommended by Artisan BookReviews.
