All I can say is WOW......This book had me from the very first chapter. I actually went back and read the book a second time for fear I had read it so fast the first time, that perhaps I had missed something.
Wow. What a story! As soon as I started reading the first chapter, I knew I would not want to stop reading.
And I Thought I'd Be A Nun is an amazing story of strength, will, and faith. Georgianne has conquered many demons, those others carried and those she fought. Her story is tragic and amazing, you don't want to miss it. Make sure you have enough uninterrupted time to read, you'll hate to put it down,
This story should be made into a movie. I truly enjoyed it but still cannot believe how she endured all that abuse and madness during her childhood. It is a must read! Loved it!
I was brought to tears many times reading the book, however, always ended up with a smile on my face by some funny situation Georgianne wrote about.
When the book arrived in the mail, I started reading and I did not stop reading even thru daily interruptions, it's a roller coaster ride that keeps you on pins and needles, I went to bed at 3am that morning, like I said I just couldn't stop reading it.
Georgianne Landy-Kordis has written a very forthright and eye opening book. This book is a testament of what was really happening in homes across the country. Things that were swept under the rug and eyes averted to what was happening. It is well written and while sad, for what was done to a child, it becomes a very uplifting read. I would recommend reading this book. Whether you were raised in a big city or small town, these things happened and still do today. It is a great reminder of the strength that is in us all and ours to choose what to do with it. Thanks Georgianne for this and can't wait to read more!
