5.0 out of 5 stars A heart-breaking yet ultimately uplifting true story, 10 Jan 2014
This review is from: House of Fetters: A True Short Story (Kindle Edition)
This is a remarkable true story and beautifully told here by Jane Arden. The writer has a real insight into Ellen's life, not just the hard facts but the emotional background to her story and therein lies it's power. I think essentially it is a portrait of resilience - the strength we have inside us to carry on even when life is at its most difficult. These accounts of 'ordinary woman' need to be written and read because we, the readers, are revealed in their truth. I wish I had personally known this woman but am delighted to have had the chance to read about her life. I wholeheartedly recommend this book and cant wait for the next instalment.
