This is quite a powerful manuscript, with some heartrending sadness, usually followed with joy – and then deep introspection about how life often works that way.

I Liked it very much; there are two sections that felt like a stab in the heart: the first when the author was virtually forced by her father to undergo an abortion; the second when the author had to have Jazz, her dog, put down. There is no way a reader can avoid being deeply touched by these moments – and others like it that occur throughout this manuscript.
