Format: Kindle Edition
I've recently been researching life in rural upstate New York and found this book to be very informative and touching. A worthy read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This family memoir is a gripping depiction of the impact of parental dysfunction on young children; as author A.G. Moore writes, "I wore the ultimate cloak of invisibility, childhood." Throughout the book, her colorful illustrations of images still vivid in her minds eye help complete a picture of a childhood like no other.
One of six children whose father did not live at home, Ms. Moore felt "isolated, invisible and ashamed" in her rural, upstate New York community and in school. Her mother struggled to feed and care for the family including seriously ill twin boys while her father blatantly kept company with other women.
Despite their difficulties, Moore describes a close camaraderie with her sisters and brothers, a bucolic environment she enjoyed outside the home, and how - with the help of several kind and observant teachers along the way-she overcame major challenges to enjoy success in her professional and personal life.
Moore goes on to tell us that she always felt uneasy in social situations, a circumstance accounted for by her late-life diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome. She explains the profound effects this condition had on her life and discusses, in depth, a current proposal to eliminate its fairly recent designation as a separate category of the autism spectrum, which has helped those afflicted, especially children.
Moore also describes Letchworth Village, the facility where her brother was ultimately confined, which gained notoriety for its mismanagement and abuse of residents akin to Willowbrook Institution in Staten Island, described as a snake pit in a widely viewed 1960s television expose.
The style and content of this courageous account is unique, and for most readers unimaginable.
