The weight of a novella. The lightness of a song. The voice of an angel. The sorrow of life, and the tenderness of remembering. A lovely story.

Beautiful story! That familiarity of people, places and even smells! And the story within the story, it just broke my heart!

A touching memoir narrated well from a child’s perspective! Do we as parents ever know how much our actions and words effect a child?

This is a poetic unveiling of the joys and sorrows of life from the eyes of an angelic child, who is often more gracious, compassionate, and wise than the adults around her. She is a lesson that innocence and wisdom are not polar opposites of each other but beautiful compliments. This is one of my favorite stories in Narrative Magazine.
