Thief of Innocence based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
THIEF OF INNOCENSE: Thief of Innocence is a work of fiction, but Ms. White’s detailed descriptions have an authentic ring. It is a fast read with a compelling story line dealing with the struggle of a young woman growing up in the sixties. It is not just women; men will find it revealing and the under thirty crowed will be astonished to see how far we Americans have come.
The birds were chirpping in the wee hours of the morning by the time I finished. A great read. I could not put this book down.
