Editorial Reviews

Sue B
It is a coming-of-age story more than anything, and it reveals more of the strength and the determination a new mother gains through her love and her care of the child.
Lila is seventeen, pregnant, and is married to Harry. Before she left her parent's home she tried to learn to drive and failed. Her brother tries to teach her but to no avail. Her husband tries, too, and fails. Lila begins to understand that the reason she can't learn to drive is because she has never had control of her life.

Meet the Author

Violet Yates and all of her books live in a condo on the beach in Kona, Hawaii. A graduate of SUNY Albany, New York, she holds a Master of Science in Higher Education Administration and a Bachelor of Arts in English. Her love for the written word was sparked by her love of reading. Forgotten Forest of the Innocent was a story she wrote about ten years ago, while taking a break from her many English assignments as an undergraduate student. It was a lot of fun, and her wish is that others will enjoy reading it as much as she enjoyed writing it. Violet's dream is to become a well-known fiction writer. Poetry is something she enjoys writing as a stress relief.
