From the Author
Circumstances of Childhood is a work of fiction. The reviews say the book is multidimensional and approaches several of life's experiences on different levels. I have to believe the reason for this is my childhood had its share of challenges and was a resource in describing various situations that occur within the story.
I wanted to write this book to place some of these situations where they belonged. They are part of a past and should not be reviewed and remembered as if they are part of today.
While writing, I had some very emotional moments, and I have hope that the reader will be able to pick them out of the story. Most of all, I have a desire that anyone who reads Circumstances of Childhood will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
