The title of the book was so long, I almost didn't want to listen to the book. Wasn't to excited about the cover either. Boy, am I glad I listened to this story! The story is told in first person, by Isabelle. It depicts her life story, the triumphs, but mostly the tribulations she went through. She wrote everything of significance that occurred to her, as well as her feelings. I loved how she always ended writing in her diary. I had tears in my eyes a few times, but a lot more at the end. For a book to do that, to capture your emotions in that way,....well, it takes talent to do that. And C.H. Borderlon definitely has the talent. Great read!
