Amazing, courrageous mother!
Ms. Cissy Houston, of course! As a mother of 5 and grandmother of 8, i totally understand what she went through, the pain, the worries, the sleepless nights, the love to her children. The love and worries doesn't end with our children, it continues when we start having grandchildren. It's like starting all over.
Ms. Robin Miles is the lady who read the book, huh? Well, let me tell you. She read that book as if she was Ms. Cissy. She represented Ms. Cissy so well it's just amazing. Ms. Miles should be reading your books if the authors cannot read them. She puts her heart into the story and keeps your interest. There has been books that i buy and then don't read when i hear the booring voice of the reader. Even some authors read so horribly you want to stop reading, example: andy williams. i love his singing voice, but his reading voice is just a no no!
Yes, when her son called her to inform her that Whitney was dead. I cried so much at that moment.
I love Ms. Cissy and Ms. Miles. Two amazing ladies.
I admire his courrage. It takes real cojones to go through what he went through and come out strong. This is what love does, all for his family. I am against drugs, anything ilegal and all that has to do with the mafia. It is a very dangerous life that one should never step into it. I'm very happy to see that he came out of it alive. I loved his book and his honesty. God is looking over you Mr. Franzese. Thank you for getting out of that life.
His wife for believing in him and giving him so much support to get out of the life. That is real love!
OMG, so much! There were moments when tears came out of my eyes because of his struggle of trying to get out of the life.
When his father went back to jail.
This book really moved me, mainly because of his courrage of getting out of that awful life.
I can't remember the book, it's in my library but it's the story of a mafia's wife. loved that book too.
Her honesty throughout the book, expressing the pain she felt when her dad went to prison the second time and still there. I feel for her brother and most of all, for her innocent mother.
Yes, that part when her father went to prison the second time and she feels guilty about it. The whole book is amazing and moving.
Overall, i felt sad seeing how she had to endure, experience and live that life. I know it made her stronger and she's out of it, but going through it was totally hard! She is in my prayers and would love to get to know her someday. She is an amazing daughter, mother, sister and human being.
Mr. Brown, i cannot find the exact words to express how i feel about your hard life. Listening to your experiences brought tears to my eyes because it brought so many memories of what i went through during my infancy. Since i opened my eyes to life i always had someone guy trying fundle me, rape me, or undress infront of me. The hardest is, it included my dad. I know politics has nothing to do with your book but i have to say, i call myself a democrat, but, i admire you even when you're a republican. You have my fullest admiration and a place in my heart. I wish there were more men like you in the world, it would totally be a different world. I'm a 57 years old latina who had a very hard life during my young years in my country, very poor to the point of carrying a five gallon bucket of clean water on my head to use at home for all our needs. It would bring a lot of tears in my children's eyes if i ever wrote a book about my life since they have only seen the good side of me. My faith, my love for life and my conviction that there was a light in the other side of the tunnel has me where i am now. Your name will never be erased from my mind Mr. Brown. You are in the group of my favorite heroes. May God bless you. Sincerely, Magdalena Gomez Solorzano
