    WOW!!

    Imagine my surprise when I realized that Connie May Fowler used to live in the very same area of town as I did. I didn't know when I picked up this book at the library. That fact just added a little bit more to this fabulous book for me. This is an incredible book, I read it in two days...I just couldn't put it down. Now I'm back to the library for more of her books!

    Excellent Read!!!

    This is a terrific book! I couldn't put it down. Fowler is a terrific writer. I could actually feel her fear and desperation. I wanted to jump through the pages to strangle her batterer myself! It is a triumphant story of courage and hope.

    A book I couldn't put down!

    After just finishing reading this book, I still feel the emotions I felt while reading it. It is a deeply emotional experience to read what a person can go through in life, and at the time, thinking they deserve this poor treatment from another human being. Being a petlover myself, her dog Katie, hooked me right away. What a wonderful loyal dog, Katie was for Connie. I too, like another book reviewer, wanted to jump into the scene and grab the man by the neck. His treatment of her was unforgiveable. My weekend ended well, as the book took a turn that make me smile through my tears. A very, very good book.

    Wonderful!

    This is a wonderful, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful book that I hated to put down. Connie May Fowler is an amazing woman for being able to overcome her tragic childhood and emerge as a strong, successful woman and a skilled writer. Her journey is well worth reading.....

    An Uplifting Story Of Hope

    Connie May Fowler, is best known for her novels such as 'Sugarcane,' and 'Before Women Had Wings.' What many of her fans didn't know, was her struggle for survival. In her memoir 'When Katie Wakes,' Fowler wrote about suffering abuse both as a child and later as an adult. While in her late twenties, Connie, lived with an abusive boyfriend who beat her on a daily basis. That was until the day, she adopted a beautiful female black Laborador Retriever she named Kateland, who helped Connie change her life around for the better. The parts I liked best about the book were the flashbacks to Fowler's childhood. It helped me better understand why she stayed with her abuser. Personally, I applaud Connie May Fowler for sharing her personal story. Her story is one of hope and survival.
