"For the Love of God" really is a "feel good" book that makes you realize maybe when you're feeling really good, that's a really great thing to hold on to. Veiled in adversity, this is a sweet writer who, further along in the book, makes you realize a young girl was bracing herself against the known and the unknown in any reality. Her very stoic personality and sometimes quite tough view of her world comes out as both of the things she must be - a deep thinker and an honest writer.
Ms. Barnes has written a beauty of a book. Her memories are like the flight attendant on page 74 who "swayed like a sapling in the wind..." She's a fighter with a scorpion paperweight and first set of rosary beads still under her bed, and her first published book out there for all of us to enjoy. Thanks Meghan!
This is a very enjoyable book and I would recommend it to all, especially young people.
