Really amazing book that touched my heart. It was so well written and kept my interest from beginning to end. I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling with acceptance by their parents and by God, especially for any young women who did not have a father figure growing up. --reubenandesthersmommy
Awesome insight of a precious lady finally finding peace with herself in a unique way. I personally heard her story in 1992 but now reading it, I recommend three tissues at least.
Very beautifully written with deep love and openness. The unique layout adds to the intrigue as the touching story of the authors discovery of her true father unfolds.
