    " I read this book for the first time in college - either for the revolutions or latin america history class. The author does a fantastic job of describing the point of view of some extremely brave women who are dealing with the complex interplay between the church, authorities and landowners, and their own class's social enlightenment. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in history, central american politics or spanish literature. I honestly wish I could have read this in spanish, because I know I am missing a lot of the beauty of the language in the translation. "

    " With full respect for the importance of the issues addressed by Agueta, I still found his work very repetitive. "

    " I read this book 20 years ago but remember it as a very moving personal account of the Salvadoran civil war. Things are heating up in El Salvador again . . . "
