Book Review: Eye of my Heart, 27 writers reveals the hidden pleasures and perils of being a grandmother by Barbara Graham
Posted May 14 2009 1:16pm
Twenty seven writers, all grandmothers, write stories from the heart of what being a grandmother has meant to each of them. Each story if full of strength, and truth, some have humor some have tears, but it shows that being a grandmother today is so different from what our grandmothers were to us when we were growing up.
I am a grandmother of 6, and everyone I meet, always tells me “No way are you a grandmother”! “You look too young to have grown children”! I don’t knit, or have gray hair (thanks to Clairol) and I love to dress funky!! I like jeans and tee shirts, and sandals, and I have all my own teeth!! So I took to this book like a bee to honey, and was so glad I read it.
It is a great read and one you want to pass along, or to give as a gift. It touches on twenty seven different women and each has a different story and reason for writing her story of being a grandmother. It makes me feel sorry for my grandmother who has passed away many years ago, but when I thing of her I think of an old bent over woman, who I barely knew. I don’t want my grandkids to remember me like that, but that they always had fun with me, and I was beautiful!! This book gives us that! Thank you! Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
