"This was an excellent book. Even though it is a work of fiction I know that certain events in the book do occur in real life. I wish that the ending had said more. Maybe there could be a sequel that describes how Alonzo worked to become a doctor and then he goes back for Rosa. I do recommend this book to other readers."

"This story was a little shocking to me. It really portrayed both sides of rebellion, without sugarcoating the cruelity and pain that it cost the citizens of Mexico. I was sad while reading this book, but that just made me realize how well-written it was. I think this should be required reading for all of America."
