¿Why the Plum for Courage gives us a peek into the soul of a little girl trying to figure out why life is so mixed up. I look forward to those minutes when I have time to read, mostly on the way home from work. I love Mary Ellen Sinclair¿s writing style and I can put myself right there in her world. I wonder when I look at her childhood pictures, as I do when I look at my own, how one small-frail child can grow up to shoulder so much. I am thankful she had the courage to write.¿ Patricia Rosa¿Queens, New York

I read Why the Plum for Courage straight through the minute I opened the book. I thoroughly admire the honesty and courage it took to tell this beautifully written story. This powerful and poignant memoir could be a best seller with a writing style that has great appeal for the mass market.¿

Why The Plum For Courage is author and artist Mary Ellen Sinclair's personal memoir of growing up in Providence, Rhode Island, in the early 1950s, and concludes with her life in present day New York City. Mary Ellen Sinclair's writing style is thoroughly 'reader friendly' and her narrated autobiography is totally engaging from the very first page as she relates with great candor and a deft simplicity the highs and lows of her life, her family, her friends, and the times she has lived through. A welcome contribution to the growing library of 20th Century American Biography, Why The Plum For Courage is entertaining, informative, thoughtful, thought-provoking, and a truly great read.
