Dayanara Torres praises my book

WHEN I MET Dayanara Torres several years ago we connected instantly. I found her incredibly brave-- she'd just written a book with her sister Jeannette Torres-Alvarez, Married to Me, in which she chronicled the pain of a public divorce and how she was able to pick up the shattered pieces of her life and start over again. Yari, as she is known to friends and family, shared her lessons to help other women. Her book was classy, honest and filled with much grace. This former Miss Universe was also blessed with unbelievable genes and lucky for her two young boys, they look just like her. 

Dayanara's commitment to her family is an inspiration as is her fierce pride in her culture. So when she wrote these beautiful words of praise about my new book, I was deeply moved:

"With her honesty, integrity, and Boricua warrior way of thinking, Sandra Guzmán has created an empowering treasure that will make us understand, embrace, love and be proud of all our differences. This treasure of a book will be my gift to every Latina friend I have!"
