Recently I was privileged to receive the memoir, My Pink Room by Kathleen Mackey Gallanar, to read and review.
Memoirs are my favorite genre of books. I find real peoples’ stories fascinating. I love getting a peek into someone else’s life.
This memoir was unique. It was started when the author was ten years old. Her father passed away after a long illness, and she started journaling and writing poetry. As an adult, she wove the journal entries and poems into a memoir. She discussed her feelings, both now and then, that came from experiencing the death of a parent at such a young age, and never really having a healthy father. It certainly shaped her entire life, and is something she will deal with forever.
It was a quick read, and interesting for me. I think it would be particularly interesting and meaningful for someone who lost a parent at an early age. The emotions and poems would be even more relatable to someone who has gone through a similar experience.
You can find the book on amazon.com- just click HERE!
