Great and inteligent novel
This is an intelligent novel about the resiliency of the human spirit.
It is a great novel by a great writer that deals with serious issues in a humorous and intelligent way. I dare you not to laugh at loud!
Told from the point of view of four distinct characters, Ana Castillo does a wonderful job narrating her novel.
The Guardians tells the story of a family whose members straddle both sides of the US-Mexican border. Castillo succeeds painting for her readers a realistic picture of what it is to live in such a contested terrain.
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson writes of the novel: "Ana Castillo's words truly make you feel as though you know exactly what it is like to grow up in a small border town in New Mexico."
