I want to say that I usually do not read Biographies or autobiographies because for me reading is to get away from real life, however when I was coming home from Lady Janes Salon, I met the author of this book on the train. He noticed all my books and asked if I read. After a long conversation he asked me to read this for him and I agreed. I took my time and read and found that I really enjoyed it. I associated with it as well due to where ai grew up. I wish him all the luck in promoting and pushing this book
