Short - Raw - Realistic - Touching
There's not much more to say than these 4 words. The thing that makes this book so brilliant is that it is about a sad story that is not dramatically written. Instead, it's realism in raw words.
There's no reason to skip this short and free great story. I truly recommend it.

Having just read Behind Whispering Pines by Marianne Curtis, I am glad she didn't do a full professional edit as other writers may have done. Why? Because the writing comes across as a journal from the heart of someone who has yet to learn how to write professionally which I believe would have destroyed some of the sentiments of this book.
I don't normally read this type of autobiography. However, the preface was such that as I know of a lady who suffered at the hands of a mother who for more than sixty years, despised her for not being a boy, I had to read Behind Whispering Pines, am I am pleased that I did.
