Have you ever wondered who’s behind the Ask Amy advice column in the Washington Post or in your local paper? Have you wondered what makes her so qualified to give advice?
The Mighty Queens of Freeville: A Mother, A Daughter, and the Town That Raised Them, is a great read that provides real insight into small-town life and the love between generations of women. It’s a light story, but it talks with honesty and forthrightness about what it’s like when a father leaves. When a husband leaves. When almost all of them leave, and the women are left behind.
What do they do, you ask? Well, they pick themselves right back up again and help each other.
Women helping women. That’s my kind of book.
