An utterly unique memoir, this book was not was I expected it to be. Though it got off to an almost excruciatingly slow start, the book was a very touching and heartfelt look into the love that can exist despite and sometimes even because of a dysfunctional environment.
The story was one that had difficult moments but I feel like it was an important story for Mary to share. One that might give others hope even or at least help them to accept that we are all a product of our experiences. Not for the faint of heart, I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever felt like life was stranger than fiction but couldn't help but embrace those there.
