Reader Review of Kismet:

I loved it from the very first page to the very last! What a story; what a life! We need to remember that sharing personal, intimate pieces of our selves, doesn't set us up for judgement, but opens us up for support and understanding. Please thank your mom for sharing her story!!! I love that she talks about, 'Appreciation for the life...not a fairy tale, a real life.' So true and honest!
