    When I purchased “Prison Letters: Walking to Honor” at the author’s book release party, I bought it because I wanted to support a local artist. Little did I know that I should have been preparing to have my mind blown.
    Yeah. It’s like that.
    “Prison Letters” is a beautifully crafted collection of vignettes of the dysfunctional family life of the narrator juxtaposed with letters from her favorite cousin, letters he wrote to her from prison. Through these stories and letters we watch both cousins grow into beautiful flowers, despite the patch of weeds from whence they sprouted.
    When I first held the slim volume in my hands, I never imagined that after reading less than twenty pages I would have already laughed and cried out loud. I never imagined that the young man on the cover would have anything to teach me, yet he did, and in a big way. I never imagined that two young people could become so wise in so few years, but there Nando and Big V are, teaching us how it’s done.
    I highly recommend “Prison Letters: Walking to Honor.” This is a book that you will quote and a book that you will go back to for inspiration. You won’t be halfway through it before you’ve thought of several people you want to share it with. You won’t be through a quarter of it before you find a few handfuls of parallels between the lives, hearts, minds and dreams of these two young people and your own.
    You are going to have to close the book once in a while to catch your breath, but you’ll open it right back up as soon as you’ve recovered.
    Ms. Sanchez has blessed the world by sharing “her favorite fellow” with us. Nando’s letters are the nectar of the gods in paper and ink; they will refresh you and lift you up. Ms. Sanchez’ gift for bringing light and darkness together to show us triumph over adversity is a gift I am most grateful to have received, and I am even more grateful that she chose to honor her cousin by immortalizing his heart and his wisdom, from which we may draw strength and hope each time we open the book.
