When I Was Seven based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A strong and sweet biography, bristling with a generous helping of memory, vivid life, prose, and an unanticipated realism; a realism that rivals the highest things in literature. "When I was Seven" is human - a living story that adores the relationship between the narrator and her grandmother. The moments are truthful and heartfelt, and the wisdom is unforgettable: "Toys break, but Grandmas don’t.” Bramwell is genuine in her treatment of life, death, and family. She speaks to you through the narrator, and one cannot help but become a sibling or cousin of this affectionate family. You will enjoy this sweet tale, of a young child and that child's view of a very adult world.
