This book. Have you heard of it? I hadn’t, but it was January’s pick for an online book group that I participate in. I loved, loved , loved Miss Jane. It’s fiction, but the story is based on Brad Watson’s great aunt who lived in the early 1900s. Miss Jane Chisolm is born to a farming family in Mississippi with a genital birth defect that causes many difficulties for her. Despite those difficulties, Jane grows to be a strong and beautiful woman. The story is inspiring and just so lovely.
Brad Watson is such a good writer, I felt like I was reading a classic novel. After you read this book, go here to read a great interview with him. You can also read more about him and his books on his website. Happy reading!
