No offense meant for Grandma Gatewood - her story is an inspirational story, and I‘m sure it would be a hoot to have heard her talk about her adventure. The low rating is really due to the construction of the book. I wish the writing was as glowing and glowing throughout the entire book rather than at the end. Too choppy in a way, and I think it‘s because every detail from her journal is used. I can see why people gush over this, but not for me.⬇️
Odette Sansom deserves to be more well known. After volunteering in WWII she was sent into occupied France where she successfully ran missions until betrayed by a member of her unit. Imprisoned & tortured by the Gestapo & was eventually sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp, put in a dark isolation cell & left to die. She survived all of it & was the most decorated spy of WWII #NonFiction2019 #SomethingInspirational #Booked2019 #SoldiersStory

Oh how I wish I could be as brave as Lindy! I am happy that she is one of the women changing the framing of rape in comedy. I am overjoyed that she is proud to be fat because I am one of the women she makes feel more beautiful. I can‘t wait for her next book this spring! 5⭐️
