I am so impressed with this book. Mr. Vidal, who was part of Operation Pedro Pan, is a breathtakingly honest writer and I am in awe of his bravery. I highly recommend this memoir which is described on the book jacket as "an immigrant's story of despair, endurance, and redemption." Vidal has shared a haunting story told in a lyrical voice.
You'd be proud of me. I didn't stomp on my husband's toes when he read my most recent rejection letter and said, "Your rejections are getting better and better."
It is nice when an editor, especially one at the top of her game, takes the time to point out the positives in a manuscript. And the negatives. (Darn those negatives. Darn.)
Thank you, Ms. Top of Her Game Editor. You made my day.
