★★★★★ The publisher provided a copy for review
A book to make us gasp. A book to make our heart sing with sorrow and hope. A book about culture and prejudice and learning and influence.
You'll enjoy the journey that starts with growing up in small-town Oklahoma and leads to studying at university in California and then to influencing and mentoring others as a teacher. The story is warm and pulls you in. I encourage readers to embrace this glimpse into the heart of a young woman, joys and challenges of helping others by loving and beliving in them during the Great Depression.
Highly recommended = an outstanding story to make us think about the great privilege each of us has to transform lives around us.
