    Evie is my Grandmother!

    This book was written about my grandmother, by her sister. The author never even considered the emotional distress that she would cause her by bringing up all of the terrible things that happened in Evie's past. Mrs. Collins-Graham, with whom I have never met, does not deserve to profit from someone elses troubled childhood. The subject of this book is not receiving any of the profits from it's sell, she is only receiving the heartache involved with memories of growing up in an orphanage. The book also needs to be edited and re-edited. The copy I read sent to my grandmother by her sister,Mrs. Collins-Graham, was full of errors and annoying to read. I would like to ask the author to not feel like she is doing anyone a favor by drudging up the past.
