by Helen Viloria Vallar
This book relates well on the everyday experiences of people from different walks of life. Filipinos who were born in the Philippines and came to the United States to better themselves would step into a position that they still maintain their attitudes, cultures, and beliefs. The book tells the experiences of people about their personalities, attitudes, and their vicissitudes of lifeóbe it in love, joy, sadness, or hope. For the Filipinos born here in the United States, this book can take them to the lifestyle and idiosyncrasies of native Filipinos. At the end of the passages of some of the poems, a scripture taken from the Bible brings a delightful message for reflection and guidance.
