interesting read

This was an engaging and enlightening book. I learned a LOT about the political culture and some of the disparities found within it. The story of the Sanchez sisters is inspiring. These two women are living their dreams in the face of trials and oppositions. The book is very easy to follow. I enjoyed reading about their lives from each of the sister's different perspectives. I think this is a story that most American women would enjoy reading.


This book reminded me of the Last Lecture. It was both inspiring and uplifting. It includes some real life lessions that should be common sense but sadly, often are not followed. Kudos to these two sisters who truly are living the American dream!

An Inspirational Read

Dream in Color is a remarkable and inspiring story for everyone in America. The Sanchez family's journey is nothing short of amazing! Two Mexican immigrants, without a high school education, managed to raise seven children and send each one to college. Loretta and Linda's strong sense of self, determination, and hope come to life through perfectly placed stories of their childhood and accounts of their time in Congress. From tales of a winning softball team, to meeting Cesar Chavez, to a party at the Playboy Mansion, Dream in Color keeps the reader interested and wanting more. In fact, my only critique of the book is that I wish I could have learned more from their parents, Maria Macias and Ignacio, grandmother, Amalia, and great- aunt, Betty. Dream in Color reminds us all that the American Dream is very much alive and the Sanchez sisters are proof.
