I loved, loved, loved this book. I was born and raised in Erie, PA and thats what caught my eye when I discovered this new memoir, but after just a few pages I was taken in by the author's easy way of writing, more like visiting over a cup of coffee. Her life has been interesting and her stories are good, but what came through to me the most was her spirit. She is a very good writer and I very much enjoyed listening to her story.
