After reading my book, Kat contacted me and asked me to read hers. I put it on my list to read next and I was so glad I did. It is the amazing story of coming up from basically bare necessities and being chastised, and coming out stronger. Most people would not have been as strong as she was. She is a very strong and determined person and I think she gets a lot of that from her Mom. I did not understand her Mom at first, but then it all made sense. They were both determined to reach their goals and dreams and they both did in their own ways. Thank you Kat for asking me to read this. I loved it! There were so many sayings in the book that my Nanny used to say and I had forgot about. It made me laugh at the memories.

There are certain things about this book that don't ring true to me. For starters, there is no such place as Dirks County, NC. This is supposed to be a memoir, a factual book, yet the setting is a fictional place. Being from NC, this drove me crazy every time it was mentioned.

I had great sympathy for the author up until the point in the book where she cusses out the young mother of her father's illegitimate child. The author was an adult, yet she berates the mother, who is a victim of incest and child molestation for being such. She blames her father's willingness to have sex with a child on his use of cocaine. Please. I was thoroughly disgusted and it stuck with me for the remainder of the book. I also had sympathy for the author's mother until it is revealed that she was just another ignorant, mean person in the long line of them characterized in this book.

In the end, I think the author gives her rat father way more credit than is deserved.

The Kindle version needs a good editor as there were tons of punctuation mistakes, mainly commas where they didn't belong.

I enjoy memoirs and this one started out great.

This book was a quick, easy read. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one night. As someone with a similar background, I found this book very relatable. I would love to read more about the author's adult life and how her early experiences influence her adult relationship with her mother.

What a story. Hard to believe that this is truth but beautiful to see that Kat was able to follow a higher road. This book is one of courage and strength and that Kat was able to make a wonderful life with her husband and son. I recommend this great read.

Kat is a really good writer, her story flowed, and had great description. Growing up in a dysfunctional family is so common these days, it's nothing new, but her determination to change was what kept me reading.

As a personal story, the book is Mrs. Spencer's interruption of the way things were. I grew up in an area like this and attended school with people who had the same attitudes and problems. I even know a few who pulled themselves out of horrible situations and became successful. Still, something didn't ring true about the book.
The 'can biscuit cobbler' brought back memories. The sudden 'religious conversion' and subsequent retreating back to a former way of life was familiar. Details were a good mixture of rural foothills Carolina...but seemed more reminiscent of the fifties and sixties instead of the eighties. Hopefully, the mythical Dirks County, and the real one, have changed.
However, Mrs. Spencer has writing skills . I wish her luck with future novels.
