About this author

Hey all you goodreaders out there~ I hope you check out my novel.
It's a story about a confused girl, her controlling mother, an old uncle, a nun, a guy called Mr. Fred, her dad that happens to be a hot dog vendor, a little psychiatric hospital, an abusive wife and other strange things. It's tagged under family relationships in amazon a lot for some odd reason... perhaps because that's what it's all about? :) One messed up family. But, there is hope and forgiveness in the mix, so for all the tears you shed and the cursing you may do - remember, it's not all bad! (just a little bit of knowledge for ya there). So, enjoy and don't forget the feedback! Thanks, alison

I loved this book. The story takes place in the 1930's in "the mountains" somewhere. This is a definite read for any educator or parent!
