I was intrigued by this book by the summary but it didn't hold my attention much after the third or fourth page. It is an interesting read but not as I imagined.

This book, written as a radical act of self-love, was a treasure to read. Winfrey-Harris is a powerful, vulnerable, and engaging author.
