Sunlight On My Shadow

  Wonderful book!   This book will take you back in time; back to when  a teenage pregnancy was a scandal.  Something you didn’t talk about.
Most of our youth, these days, don’t realize that there was a time, not so long ago, that unwed mothers were ‘sent away.’

This is a memoir of an unwed, teenage, pregnant, Catholic girl.  Her story of becoming pregnant, her dynamics with her dad and facing her shame alone.  It’s a story of coming of age.  A story of how nothing ever just goes away.
Very well written and very bravely written!

 

Cheers!

Flypaper- Book Review

 It’s been a while since I’ve done a book review and I’m happy to be back at it.  I mean really, sometimes I look back at the books I’ve selected on BookBub and wonder what the hell I was thinking.
I’m the type of person that if I can’t make it past page 10 I’m pretty much out.
I’ve had this one on my Kindle for quite a long time. Just one evening, in desperation to find a book worth reading, this caught my eye.

Really good read.  You get a mild Steven King feel.   A connection with Doloris Claiborne.  I love the detailed descriptions.  I get a total picture of the local store, his home and the local police department.  This is a movie in the making.
It’s kinda sick, crazy and true to life all at the same time.

Totally recommending this book.  If this is your thing. My con….the ending so sucked for me.  Not even a cliff hanger.

And the pen name….C.K. Vile…….ugh
