The Duchess

In My Own Words:
I'm trying to get out of the frozen North and return home to Florida (love covers a multitude of electoral sins). I love film, good music (Al Green is the man!), good books, and Jesus (not in this particular order, of course). I fancy myself a writer, sort of. I'd love to get a good start on a novel I sort of started over the Thanksgiving break. We'll see.

Life for Me Ain't Been No Crystal Stair: One Famil&hellip by Susan Sheehan
5.0 out of 5 stars Devastating!, March 27 2001
I devoured this book in one night. I was shocked and saddened by the story of this young woman and her family's history with the New York Foster Care system. The thing that surprised me most about the book is the family's unwavering hope that someday they would be reunited, despite the horrible poverty and dysfunction in their lives.
