Sister's accounts of her life are truly captivating. While attempting to assist in the editing of her work, I got so caught up in reading her stories and comments on life that I had to go back several times and remind myself of my duty. When this work is done, I will be in line to obtain a copy. Steve Nelson, retired high school English teacher
