Story Circle Book Review of Home Front Girl

Story Circle has reviewed my book!  I joined Story Circle over a year ago and have really reveled in the support the group gives women writing memoirs and personal stories.  They review books “by, for, and about women.”  booklogo_tn

A lovely review by Trilla Pando has just appeared.  It’s a perfect review!  You can read it here.

Here are some highlights:

This book is more than an interesting and well-written account of an individual; it is history….Kudos to that daughter, Susan Signe Morrison, who took volumes and volumes of diaries, journals, school notebooks, and other documents and crafted both a loving portrait of her mother as a young girl, and an accurate history of time and place.

Memoir and journal lovers will relish this book. But I can also see it on American History reading lists in both high schools and colleges. Were I ever to teach a journaling workshop to young people, this one would top the list.

When I really appreciate a book, I share it. A friend who has a birthday coming up might want to watch her mail box. Don’t worry. It’ll be brand new. Mine is a keeper and has already found a place on my overcrowded bookshelves.”
