I found it very strange that Louise writes under the name of the man she divorced and obviously disliked at the time of writing. I also found it unusual that she seems to have had no female friends to speak of -she is entirely a man's woman. Disregarding her disabilities (I have disabled friends and am disabled myself) I did not feel any kind of connection with this author and doubt I would like her at all if I met her. I admire her for her ability to cope with most things thrown at her, but feel no warmth for her.
The book is quite well written as far as spelling and grammar are concerned but there are too many repititions, and I often wondered if I had got the wrong page on my Kindle as I was reading something word for word that I'd already read.Read more ›
My heart missed a beat when Louise said that one of her friends turned out to be Terry Wiles I believe his name was who wrote the book On Giants Shoulders many years ago and it was made into a very moving tv documentary in which he played the main part.. There are some thing that stop with you for a long time and that documentary and this book
are two of the them .
