AuthorsDen Professional Review:
This is an account of one woman’s life long journey, detailing the painful yet poetic if not downright heartfelt times. Sometimes depressing, occasionally humorous, but written with wit and passion. This story takes you into Karen Laura-Lee Wilson’s life, the bitter, the bad, and the best of times.
Upon receiving this book to review I noticed the cover was nicely done. The picture on the front paints “the whole woman cutting the vines that bind” The illustration and colors were nicely chosen. It is an appealing book to pick up. Like a house, chosen for its curb appeal, you are drawn to “step inside” for a closer look.
Grammatically, I found the book to be impeccable and therefore a pleasure to read. Unlike when you pick a book up and are enjoying the content yet have to repeat the correct sentence structure in your head…I was glad this book was free from error and could allow the mind to roam the pages.
Karen Laura-Lee Wilson emerges a beautiful person from the deep recesses of poverty, child neglect and various ill tidings. All of us know someone who has suffered such emotional tragedies in their lives. It is a breath of fresh air to witness the emerging of a less naïve, more assertive and powerful woman.
In closing this book is a poignant look at a full life of tatter and dismay, care and concern and ultimate growth into loving motherhood. The author did a beautiful job of sharing her story of self. For anybody who enjoys personal memoirs, I believe you will thoroughly enjoy reading about the life thus far of Karen Laura-Lee Wilson. For me, it was a reminder of how many lives are different. Struggles are dissimilar for everyone and some of us handle the scars better than others. I found myself wanting to meet Karen just for the simple strength and aura she must bring to the room.
