Truly one of the best books I've EVER read! I read her first book When Heaven and Earth Changed Places and was very impressed. This one is even better. It's an autobiography that reads like a novel. I compare her style to Maya Angelou. There is much humor while underlying her amazing story, a deeply spiritual message emerges that shouts hope, forgiveness, and love of our fellow world citizens. I LOVED this book and hope she writes many more!
