You Won't be Lullabied
While reading this book I found myself hoping and even praying for the young girl being raised by a single parent drug-addicted father. Every once in a while I would tell myself, this could never be true. And then I read the biography of the author. This author knows whereof she speaks.
I found this book impossible to set down, so if you have unbridled reading habits, make sure you have the time to finish without disrupting your life. This is a Canadian book and persons in Montreal will probably recognize street names. This is a book with wonderfully drawn pictures of dysfunctional families that still succeed in loving both their own children and those of their neighbours. This is a book to remind us that people who carry heavy burdens of guilt and sorrow, need our understanding and help, not our censure and trite advice. It is not always possible to pull up one's own socks.
