    1. There is no joy finishing this collection of Blogs There is the emptiness of bidding a lover goodbye on a railway station the poverty of counting 11 shinny pennies when the lolly costs a full shilling.I feel I ve lost a friend this constant companion of mine for the past few weeks as I ve dipped into this book has gone and left me to look upon life for myself.That is not to say these blogs are contemporary thoughts for the day follow this way and blessings will come On the contrary the writing o [...]


    2. Inspiring, touching, wicked, funny, accessible, erudite, heartbreaking I am going to buy a passel of these books and give them to my BFFs And they will love reading them.

    4. At the beginning, I enjoyed Victoria Dougherty s honest recounting of her life with family refugees and personal memoirs Some of the stories in her book Cold Essays on Love, Faith, Family and Other Dangerous Pursuits made me laugh while others brought me to tears Unfortunately, the stories started repeating and I struggled to finish the book The structure reminded me of a compilation of blog like essays than a well edited book.

    6. Some of this was ARC was very good but then the author just babbled along about crap that was just garbage 250 pages of it was just totally boring and of no consequence I did NOT enjoy at all was supposed to get a free book but the internet claimed this page was not available
