it was amazing
Read in June, 2012

Simply stunning prose, stories, and message(s). I gobbled this up in the wee hours of the morning, unable to put it down. The writing moves the pace forward smoothly, is effective and efficient (you can tell the words were chosen purposefully and just so), and paints the autobiographical stories as the author intended. The Barbizon Diaries is a very uplifting and self-reflective book (for the reader, but I'm sure also for the author) in an elegant, conversational style. I was reminded that the darker parts of our lives do not diminish us, but can serve to make us greater. This book made me want to take a deep breath, and Win.
