Someone in my book club recommended we read this and I was totally blown away. It made me cry and laugh out loud. It is beautifully written and I totally relate to her story. We had deep lasting discussions at our BC meeting. I can't recommend this book enough. #sleeper

I need to thank you for YOUR BOOK. What a wonderful, wonderful story of hope, time and passage of time, of growth, of understanding of one’s self.
It is ultimately a story that lets one truly into seeing how change happens, and how a life flows. Your past, your life, the love and experiences you have had in this single life time are so rich.
Mache Seibel, MD, Author of the best-selling book The Estrogen Window
Sandy Pimentel's new book, Blind Acceptance, is so well written and packed with twists and turns that it reads more like a novel than a memoir. Throughout the text she weaves the through line of her life – live abundantly, love fully, and be an active participant in life. I believe her story will capture your heart; it did mine.
John H. Kennedy, Boston University lecturer and former Boston Globe journalist
Sandra Pimentel's searingly honest memoir takes readers on a journey through a fascinating life dedicated to compassion, creativity, and–above all–family.
Jewelle Taylor Gibbs, PhD, Author of Destiny's Child
Sandra Pimentel, a young woman from an Italian working-class family, actively participating in community organizations, becomes ever more aware and angry over racial and social inequalities in American society. Blind Acceptance is a tribute to the enduring human spirit. Ms. Pimentel's unconditional acceptance encompasses the multitudes fortunate enough to venture into her warm and welcoming orbit.
Juliette E. Fay, Executive Director, Martha's Vineyard Community Services
Blind Acceptance captures the story of Sandy Pimentel, caught between the generation of women expected to toe the line and the next generation who demanded that the feminine voice be heard. Driven by her reliable natural instinct, Sandy blew past all the norms once dictated by family, religion, and the status quo.
Jess Weaver, writer for 'Kelly's Thoughts on Everything'

This is an incredible story about an amazing family, and of the complexities faced by a woman traversing through the challenges of racism, social injustice, and the evolution of her role in the world. It's a seriously great read and I couldn't put it down.
