Amy Dickinson comes from a long line of strong women. They had to be. The men in the family seldom stayed around. When Dickinson's husband left her, she and her daughter moved back to Freeville and let the women there help heal the hurts.
Dickinson (who became the "replacement" for Ann Landers) tells a wonderful story. I found her tales of life in Freeville entertaining and really wish I could meet all the women in her life. A very enjoyable memoir.
