    Bono does it again, with a lot of feeling

    I've just purchased Chastity's latest book, and could not put it down. I was drawn to read more about her unfortunate failing music career, and the toll it takes on your love life. Learning to grow up quickly, and yet be in love with a woman who is very much in love with her. She'll leave you on the edge of your seat, wanting more. She'll have you crying and yet turning the next page. Your heart will fly high with her accomplishments, and yet your heart will break with the death of a loved one. This story show's the transition's from one point to the other. Of caring what other people think of you, to just caring about a loved one. More power to you Chastity, and thanks for telling a story about love, life and the pursuit of happiness. Peace Love & Prosperity Always 'Your Sister In the Community'
