Reviews

"[Castillo] writes of her struggles with childhood poverty and the many obstacles that her family had to face on a daily basis. . . . It is a high-wire act to bring together a combination of personality characteristics and specific cultural touchstones and make it resonate with a wider readership, but the author handles it well. . . . A compassionate look at those crossing points in our shared lives." --Kirkus "This exquisite memoir is full of compassion and maternal love." --NBC News "Reading Black Dove is like sitting down to an intimate chat with Castillo about growing up with one foot in your parents' world and the other in your own.
