I found this book to be compelling. Plymouth67 has probably led a sheltered life and is simply not aware of what life is like growing up in the home of an alcoholic.

Ted's Review said:
I read "Half Broke Horses" by the same author and liked it quite a bit. That book was billed as historical fiction. This book is supposed to be an audiobiograhy. Although it is well-written and engaging, it does seem as if Wells has stretched the truth. It’s like each chapter is trying to top the previous chapter’s claims of poverty and abuse. Did this stuff REALLY happen the way she claims? Could her parents really behaved the way she writes? For me, there seems to be a credibility issue which detracted from the overall book. I would rate this as an A minus if it was billed as a historical novel and a C plus if billed as an autobiography.
