    What a truly beautiful book; a rare gem!!!

    This is one of my favorite books ever. It is amazing to me that it is/was not a bestseller. Well, it shouldn't be amazing; most bestsellers are pure and horrible crap. This is literature at it's finest. A brilliant buildingsroman by a very interesting and special woman, who was also a very interesting a special little girl.
