After reading,"Couldn't Keep it to Myself", I had to read this one. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. These ladies are unbelievability strong and couragous for allowing their stories to be printed. And Wally Lamb is a hero in my book! If you need a reality check in regards to your life, just read these ladies stories.

I enjoyed the short stories of this book. The central theme of women who come from poor backgrounds and who are victims of men is very touching. However, there is a nice mixture, such as an account of prison life written by a former lawyer. I personally really loved the stories of growing up and the women's marriages. The poem about a daughter was especially heart-wrenching for me. It was easy to forget that these stories were written by the women in prison themselves, because they are so nicely done. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others as well.

Short stories written by women prisoners. Each story was different yet I felt a common theme throughout many of them. Many of these women were victims of abuse or circumstances beyond their control. It makes you stop and think before judge someone too harshly.

A great insight in to real women, like any of us, affected by lifestyles many of us will never know, and an understanding on how any of us could have been in their shoes. A peek in to the lives of female prisoners and how they survive and persevere. A great project by Wally Lamb.

A collection of short stories written by women that have been to the depths of despair and survived. A stark contrast to my life living here in 'care-bear' land. Made me want to read more from these gifted women.

Name :: Night Ace <br> Age :: Little younger than Bluesheath. <br> Gender :: &male <br> Species :: Pegasus <br> Occupation/Hobby :: Eh. He wants to be a Wonderbolt one day. <br> Coat :: Dark midnight blue with white freckles dotting his cheek and knees (Don't ask!) <br> Eyes :: Shining turquoise <br> Mane/Tail :: White with jagged sky blue stripes. Both are relatively short and spikely cut. <br> Cutie Mark :: He, too, has yet to get his, though I am thinking it will either be an aviator hat with some goggles, or a pair of aces. Feel free to include it! <br> Wings :: (By the by, Bluesheath has larger wings like Moone.) Average sized. Nothing special. <br> Build :: Lanky yet sturdy <br> Family :: See Bluesheath's. (Also, you have the choice to decide if this was before they had no parents, or after. If after, they will be slightly subdued. Depression is quite common in this family. I will be working on Bluesheath's tragic tale at 'olm'. If I can. . .) <br> Other :: He has a quite spunky and cheerful personality.
