    1. This was beautiful This was devastating In many ways, Dancing with Ghosts reminded me of non fiction it really felt like a life lived rather than a story told, and it gave me some much needed perspective While my life, albeit still somewhat short in years, has had its share of difficulties, I ve been blessed in so many ways that the protagonist of this story was not Having now read this book, I feel both keenly aware of and profoundly grateful for each and every one of those gifts.I think this [...]
