Going Live today as writer Carol! So so exciting! I'm over seventy, but in my heart I'm that girl full of vim and vigor facing down the bull. Stories have always sustained me. I wrote novels to tell other people’s stories, and now I’ve embarked on a memoir trilogy to tell mine. My story spans the globe, from the Holocaust and the pogroms of Russia, to South Africa and apartheid, to England and France, and finally to America, and connecting fifty years later with a sister who had been abandoned in Europe in WWII. It took a while for me to understand that discovering the place where I was willing to accept everything about myself, the deepest shame as well as the greatest joy, and not shrink from any of it, truly freed me to love. My hope is that you recognize some of you in me, and want to go on reading.
