I learned something new about Mexican culture and life at Starkishia’s recent Book Talk at the Richland Library that was not recorded in her memoir.
In America we have charity hospitals, HUD… There is no charity in Mexico. Family and the money earned from hard work is all you have.
The author noted that male dominance over women is sharp which complicated her already troubled teen marriage… This point was noteworthy since the teen’s decision to leave the marriage was extremely consequential and definitely life changing.
