    This would be a great book for parents of a deaf or hard of hearing child, as it gets into the mind of a person growing up with the condition, and explains how they feel.  It would also be helpful to anyone involved in teaching or working with people who have any type of disability.

    For anyone (like me) who was a great fan of The Walton’s (That, and Little House kept me going throughout my grade school years), this is not only a book that will bring you back to that time, it is also a fascinating and amazing memoir of a little girl who became a part of a huge, fast-paced world.

    ISBN: 13: 978-1885881380

    The writing style of Forbidden Strawberries, the memoir of Cipora Hurwitz, a Polish Jew forced to grow up during the Holocaust, is stark, matter-of-fact, and not necessarily elegant, but because of this simplicity and especially because of Hurwitz's vivid recollections, it is powerfully emotive.

    Publisher: David C Cook

    Passport Through Darkness, is a true story, told with great passion by the author.  Kimberly L. Smith was an ordinary American woman, happily married with a successful career.

    As author Glenn Mosley addresses in the first pages of his anatomy of a largely forgotten TV Western, few television or film fans know Henry Fonda starred in the 1959 The Deputy. Even fewer recall that The Deputy was something of a controversial show for two seasons. On those grounds alone, Glenn Mosley offers both Fonda and television watchers a very readable and needed exploration into a neglected chapter of entertainment history.

    The Jagged Years of Ruthie J., by author Ruth Simkin is a memoir about the author’s painful adolescent years “incarcerated” in a psychiatric institution. Chestnut Lodge in Rockville Maryland, a facility that treats the seriously mentally ill. It was there that the author’s parents trustingly, however naively, placed their daughter in the hands of a psychiatrist who lacked compassion, misdiagnosed and goaded her into acting out her frustrations when she asked why she was placed in a psychiatric hospital for the seriously mentally ill population.

Georgia is now involved in leading an abused-women organization and using her adventurous spirit to help people in crisis. I am looking forward to her next memoir.

The families of Days are so courageous and strong and, reading this book, it is no wonder
