    Hi, Calli. Welcome aboard. Did you read that about Susan in the recording studio yesterday? That would be wonderful.

    Hi Calli, welcome to this forum, I hope to hear a lot from you.
    Wouldn't it be great if Susan would write another book someday?
    I think she'll write it if she feels she has to "prove a point" again
    Well, I am interested in everything Susan will ever write

    I'm not going into any details, because I don't want to spoil anything for the rest of you, but it was even better than I expected -- and I expected a lot. I thought it was well written, but still found a couple typo's.

    I laughed a lot. Susan has a unique way of telling things that just make a person burst out laughing. She also picked out some of the darnest things to put into the book. Even when I think about them now, I have to giggle. I think Piers will have a hearty laugh or two also!

    Her honesty amazes me. I don't know if I could go into so much about my life. She answered questions we had wondered about. She wrote about things we never even knew about. There were still some things she left unsaid -- and that's just fine.

    While I was reading I'd be giggling, then there were times I couldn't see the words on the pages because my eyes were so teary. I'll admit a few times I had to put the book aside to cry. There were bits from her childhood and a chapter about the Priory which particulary upset me. When I finally finished the book and went to bed, I didn't sleep very well. It was like I'd seen a very emotional movie and hadn't completely wound down yet. Every time I woke up, I woke up very emotional and weepy -- but then I'm an emotional person.

    And -- she loves us!! She makes that perfectly clear. She even makes mention of the "pollster" fans and our efforts on her behalf (and we didn't think she noticed)! She also mentions how thrilled she is with all the gifts she receives and, of course, the wonderful quilt which I think she will treasure forever. The pictures in the book are wonderful.

    I imagine this book will hit every person differently because of our different life experiences.
    It affected me deeply. Susan's unbending faith in God is unbelieveable and her determination and courage when she is absolutely terrified is amazing. I don't see how anyone can read this book and not fall in love with her (or more in love with her). It will be fun to discuss it once everyone has read it.
    I really liked reading your review. It inspired me to the point that I now want to read the book too. I love Susan's first album and listen to it over and over.

    Welcome, Barneydad!

    Yes -- you really must read the book -- Corkie's last sentence says it all.....

    "I don't see how anyone can read this book and not fall in love with her (or more in love with her)."

    Will look forward to your review!
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance!

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    Are you sure this was the hospital Susan was born it. It was the hospital her uncle was at, I believe.
