Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

HEARTLAND by Sarah Smarsh

Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth - Sarah Smarsh

I could identify with Sarah's emotions as she talks about growing up even though I grew up in the city while she was in farm country and there is over 30 years between us.  She had a hard life but survived and succeeded by choosing not to follow her family's cycle.  She is between two worlds but can handle both.  She tells the truth and I felt bad for her but rooted for her to break the cycle of poverty.  I was glad to see her make it.
