This book was recommended to me by a friend. When I started to read it, I didn't want it to end. I wanted to hear more about this young girl growing up in Toronto in the 60's. I wanted to learn more about what it was like for her coming of age with immigrant parents, about how their world collided with hers. When Their Memories Became Mine is more than just a memoir, it's a story of tragedy, bravery and how trauma affects us all. Pearl Goodman captures her audience with her humour and ability to paint a landscape with words.
