I feel badly for kids today, they will never experience growing up as both Jann and I did -- it was fun, challenging, interesting and exciting, and we were rarely bored.
In her young adulthood she faced some big challenges, but she grew from them and together with her early life has created a strong, independent and caring woman of incredible talent, one I am proud to identify as an "Alberta Girl"First, I am a Jann Arden Groupie. She certainly can write moving, soul searching songs but a book? Her witty, poignant prose is a great read, and I actually hear her voice as I read it.
I hope she writes a sequel as this one was hard to leave. Absolutely loved this book , it was such a wonderful insight into Jann Arden’s life !! I love how Jann writes - it feels like she is speaking right to me. Jann is a fan of both my daughter and me and to share this book and compare thoughts of someone that we both admire is fun.
It is funny, sad I could definitely relate to her life growing up in the 60’s and living on a farm !! One thing no one will ever say about Jann, that she's not honest!
