"Funny the way life's trials and tribulations can make you laugh out loud when they're happening to Becky Povich. In her memoir, From Pigtails to Chin Hairs, Becky recalls a life's journey not always funny, to be sure, but told always with a wry bemusement that charms and delights. A wonderfully engaging story of the heroine next door."

* RECENT REVIEW FROM ROBERT BRAULT (Author of "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." ....among thousands of others)

"If you wish to step back in time and enjoy memories of the period, this book is what you need. Take your time with it, though, because you don't want to read it fast. Each paragraph is a deja vu, a throwback to a simpler time. Povich captures smells, experiences, innovations, and the way parenting used to be. Food, travel, playing outside till dinner. There's so much rich material here you can't digest it at once. Enjoyable read."

* RECENT REVIEW FROM C. HOPE CLARK (Author of the Carolina Slade Mystery Series, and editor of Funds for Writers)

* A TERRIFIC BOOK REVIEW *

I'll be back later to reply to your comments, to read as many other blogs as possible, and to leave my comments on them. I honestly appreciate everyone who takes the time to stop at my blog because I know how time consuming it is. 

For now, though, may I please mention that McGuffy's Reader has just posted a terrific review of my memoir.

Word-of-mouth is a wonderful way for a book to be discovered, so I'm very grateful to McGuffy and everyone else who has posted marvelous reviews about From Pigtails to Chin Hairs: A Memoir & More. 

Leaving comments on Amazon, Goodreads, Library Thing, etc. are also very helpful. My sincere thanks!
