Interview with Propeller here: http://www.propellermag.com/Oct2017/BehrForrester102317.html
From a hometown Mancos reader. All love. So grateful for this:
"Jenny Forrester's memoir transported me through time, as she writes about the small Colorado town I grew up in, and will always refer to as "home". Being just a few years behind her in school, it was like living the story alongside her page by page. Ms Forrester is a gifted story teller that kept me wanting more, rendering me incapable of putting it down. I purchased the audible version for myself and the book version for my mother, so excited to have both. I admire and commend this writer for her honesty and openness in sharing the most private moments of her life. What a brave warrior!! Her Mother was my teacher and was protrayed so accurately and eloquently. She was a beautiful and strong woman that touched the lives of her students. Many of us former students, many had moved away from Mancos, grieved her loss as we learned the tragic news."
With thanks to Powell's books for adding the book to the holiday list!
