    I m a bibliophile whose love of books bleeds into each new day I mourn the books I ve not read And there are some books I want to head butt and give a good kicking All wannabe writers and I include myself in that category begin writing about someone else, but end up writing different versions of themselves There are things we dress and give voice to because we re too scared to say it ourselves Harpie cuts out the middle man, even though she s a woman, and tells it like it is Honesty is not the best policy, it s the only policy Out of the tens of thousands of books I ve read she is he most honest Try it Try writing about your sex life and blokes that are tossers Try writing how you ended up in a women s hostel and had to enlist other residents to steal her own car and escape not a violent partner or resident, but the hostel itself If you want to know what the NHS is really like this is an insider account and should be required reading for bureaucrats Work for an agency Read this and see how workers are routinely ripped off Harpie has written and published a number of books, but her life is exotic than Cleopatra Lots of good books don t get published Lots of good books get published and don t get read Read this book Honestly, there should be a Harpie in every municipal library, in every reader s library That s my truth You write your own Here s the template.

    I love Harpie What a woman Her tragedies are beyond anything I could ever imagine And yet she survives This story will leave you in tears, in awe, and in admiration You will feel her pain, anguish, and joy from the brilliantly written descriptions Beginning when she was a child, into her adult years, and as a mother, she knew only abuse But she managed to endure and eventually discovered the secreted parts of her memory I m not one to give out spoilers, so will end with this is a fascinating, sometimes humorous read, that you will not soon forget You might even see yourself in her I give Harpie five stars and wish I could give

    Oh, Harpie What a rough ride And I know you d probably hate getting sympathy but tough Have some all the same.This diary is written very matter of fact and really not woe is me.But really it should be called It s a Gritty Life being polite, but think of something which rhymes with gritty.I was left wondering how much bad luck one person can get lumbered with But this lady just rolls up her sleeves and gets on with it.Love light blessings for happier times soon to come Harpie Thoughts become things choose the good ones xx

    Poor Harpie Motherless and abused by her father and with low self esteem, she is shunted between various foster homes as a child, feeling unloved and unlovable Her adult life lurches from one crisis and doomed relationship to the next, and yet her fighting spirit shines throughout and she is ever hopeful that one day she might meet the love of her life and also write the next bestseller Some people are born victims, but Harpie is doing her utmost to try and improve her lot for herself and her son I say power to Harpie, and may she finally get the luck that she so thoroughly deserves A recommended read.

    I absolutely loved this book and did not want it to end Harpie is the absolute epitome of the average woman, except that she has had than her fair share of rotten luck in her life Even so, she remains strong and valiant throughout.Personally, I would not have tolerated that son of a boyfriend who peed everywhere there is such a thing as respect for people s property, but I understand why she did it Sooner her than me though.Can t wait for the next book by this author.
