all about my Books

When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.

Through her whirlwind journey of joy and sorrow, she watches, learns, and grows. She observed the desperation of some women to get married, and the lengths they will go to achieve it.
