Hiding Behind the Cloth - Memoirs of an Innocent Child

Newly published book now available on Amazon.

Recent reader's review on FB page: "...The book, which Im almost done with..is OUTSTANDING to say the least!!!!!"

This book is an eye-opener that everyone should read. It is a book of courage and determination, written on behalf of all the children in this world that have been and still are being abused.

This is an interesting discussion group. I would like to know who started it and if it has accomplished the objective? How many in this group have read the books recommended?
Cassie's is a must. But how many others have you all out there actually paid any attention to?

Maxie's Mom says:
I've been told my book, The Issues of Life, is a page-turner. One person said she started it one afternoon and finished at 4:00 o'clock the following morning. Another got so involved she got mad at one character and threw the book down, then had to go pick it up and finish it to make sure he got what was coming to him! The Issues of Life is the fictionalized story of the life of my grandmother whose mother died in 1903. "Corrie," nine years old, was pushed aside by her father's new wife, sent away to school, made to leave her father's house to earn a living at a very young age, then manipulated into a marriage that her stepmother thought would be a lucrative connection for the 'family.' Corrie endured a tumultuous marriage and suffered sorrows, shame and poverty after her husband was incarcerated, forcing her to place two children in an orphanage, while barely able to keep the other four children fed and clothed. Sheer determination drove her to find work and go to nursing school to bring her family out of their dismal situation. I still shake my head at the misery she suffered and still triumphed. Much of the background was taken from stories heard from my own mother and aunts and uncles.

I consider your post the same way I consider unwanted sales calls. go to your own forum. Good luck with your book but this is not the place to "sell" it.

SAMMY AND ME: A G.I. AND HIS DOG IN VIETNAMis a great and heart-warming story with 50 pictures; some of which are awesome. This is my husband's book and I did help him get it set up and put the pictures in, but it's all his story about Vietnam and the dog that kept him sane.

One Trip Too Many. It is written by an Air Force Academy graduate who went through pilot training in Selma Alabama in the 60s, spent nearly four years in Vietnam flying three different aircraft, including the 105 over North Vietnam, and finally a life-changing, career-ending accident. It is funny, sad, exhilarating, and all around entertaining.

Muddy Jungle Rivers - it is my father's story of his time in Vietnam. I'm just over half way through the book and I am amazed at his writing ability, especially given the difficulty he must have had putting those memories on paper. It is definitely a page turner!

"Death Watch Diary" is firsthand account of life on death watch. It is a 40 page powerful read for $.99 on amazon Kindle. Robert Towery was executed by the State of Arizona on March 8, 2012. For the last 35 days of his life, Robert was placed on "Death Watch" where his every move was recorded and chronicled by prison officials. Robert also kept a diary which he gave or mailed to his attorneys as installments. He detailed the ironies and absurdities of life in prison. Read this book and share it with your friends - it will make you think!
