My review: I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review. Also, this book will count towards my “PopSugar 2016 Checklist” reading challenge, marking off the “an autobiography” square since it is is an autobiography. This books tells the story of Anna Lillian Young’s life as written by Anna Lillian Young. There is a foreword included in the book that was written by my Uncle Will, who is Anna’s great-grandson. This book begins during Anna’s childhood and chronicles the journey of her life up through her 89th year. Anna had a difficult childhood at times and struggled at different points during her life but her life was full of family and love and many times adventure. It was a very interesting story and I’m glad that my Uncle found the manuscript and was able to bind it. Anna traveled a lot, when she was younger traveling between other family member’s households and when older she traveled to where her husband was able to find work. Anna had an astounding memory and recorded many details not only from her later years but also from her childhood in her manuscript. I’m glad I was able to experience pieces of her life, thanks Will for sharing with this one with me!
