I must admit that I have never been an avid reader;however, this book caught my attention! I was advised that once I started I would not want to stop. Let's just say I read the book in less than 48 hours. I loved the way in which the story was written and how the writer was able to identify the work of God in every obstacle she faced. The picture was painted vividly and it made me feel as if I was Miss Oma. Most of all, I was moved by the way she honored her mother in this book. One can only be encouraged by this story. I have a few people that I am going to purchase the book for. I look forward to volume 2 and will definitely support Mrs. Parker's future endeavors.
A wonderful book by a gifted writer.She was able to write about her life experiences in explicit detail. I was happy to be a part of the project.
