    I ve worked with special needs adults for 21 years and have interviewed many, many families And I live in Mississippi And I am a mom This book is spot on Like others who have commented, I was frequently struck with amazement that it was written by a man From a literary point of view, I m not sure all of the developmental information about Jewel was needed, but much of it was It probably could have been condensed But to the reviewers who say it was slow and tedious and lacked a satisfactor I ve worked with special needs adults for 21 years and have interviewed many, many families And I live in Mississippi And I am a mom This book is spot on Like others who have commented, I was frequently struck with amazement that it was written by a man From a literary point of view, I m not sure all of the developmental information about Jewel was needed, but much of it was It probably could have been condensed But to the reviewers who say it was slow and tedious and lacked a satisfactory climax, I would say that is the point Mothers of exceptional children, especially of that generation, have frequently talked of their lives rev...

    One should not read past reviews until you finish a book Alot of 2 and 3 stars but I liked this book immensely, so I gave it a five It was well written, had good character development, an eye for detail, and was emotion packed A poor rural Mississippi family s sixth child born in 1943 is a Downs Syndrome child Instead of putting her daughter, Brenda Kay, in an institution Jewel believes she c...

    I liked this book I really like the prose style of the author I just didn t much like the story line, hence the 3 stars, rather thanIf I could, I d give the author 5 stars for writing style, and 2 stars for story line It just didn t much go anywhere I kept reading because I felt like there was going to be a point made, somewhere along the line, but it never made it What really bugged me was a male author, writing from the first person perspective of a woman I don t know why this s I liked this book I really like the prose style of the author I just didn t much like the story line, hence the 3 stars, rather thanIf I could, I d give the author...

    I think this book was so well written, the characters are so well developed and even now, after reading it over a year ago, I still am amazed that it was written by a man Brett Lott wrote Jewel extremely well.But, a book being well written doesn t make me love it I just disagreed with so many of the actions of Jewel that it left such a bad taste in my mouth at the end Mainly her disdain and disregard for her husband Some might see it as inspiring that she was so determined to get to Californ I think this book was so well written, the characters are so well developed and even now, after reading it over a year ago, I still am amazed ...

    Boooooooring There was no climax The book didn t build up to anything, it was just about Jewel s boring life It took me 3 months to finish it because I kept buying new books to read instead, I finally had to force myself to finish it, hoping that it would get better It didn t I read for about 10 minutes at a time while smoking or pooping , so I need a book that will keep me interested and maybe even make me want to sit down and read instead of watching TV...

    I m wavering between 2 stars and 3 I m rounding up because I m in a good mood right now.Several years ago, a friend of mine gave me a stack of books she d been collecting based on Oprah s book list recommendations and wanted to pass them on not because they were great or anything, she assured me, but because she doesn t like to keep books I laughed at her but accepted the books because I was a recent college graduate with a crappy job and a debt to income ratio that would make anybody cringe I m wavering between 2 stars and 3 I m rounding up because I m in a good mood right now.Several years ago, a friend of mine gave me a stack of books she d been collecting based on Oprah s book list recommendations and wanted to pass them on not because they were great or anything, she assured me, but because she doesn t like to keep books I laughed at her but accepted the books because I was a recent college graduate with a crappy job and a debt to income ratio that would make anybody cringe and I couldn t afford to buy books Plus I ve always been conscious of the fac...
