BLIND ACCEPTANCE

The evolution of a marriage of true partners maturing and changing, grappling with personal and family issues, plays out before a backdrop of the social and political upheaval of the latter half of the 20th century, bringing surprises, challenges, and blessings.

In Blind Acceptance, the author experiences a metamorphosis as she confronts the realities of war, racism, and the cultural changes for women of her time. With an innate sense of our inter-connectedness and an unwavering trust in humankind, the author and her steadfastly supportive and delightfully irreverent husband perpetuate a family legacy of caring for others without reservation.

Sandra Pimentel (née Pasquale) was born in 1942 in Boston, earned a nursing degree, and married Paul Pimentel in 1965. She graduated from UMASS Boston with a BA in Management of Human Services. As an advocate for social change, Sandy's award-winning work on local and national levels has helped improve the quality of life for children, teens, and adults. She and her husband worked and raised their children in numerous locations before settling on Martha's Vineyard.
