I am a long time fan of Connie May Fowler's work and remember reading "Before Women Had Wings" in the late '90s, and the powerful effect it had on me. Connie grew up with alcoholics who physically and verbally abused her, like her mother and grandmother before her. She continues the cycle of violence when she lets an alcoholic and abusive man into her life. Despite Connie's intelligence and education, she cannot break the cycle until she adopts a dog who eventually gives her the courage to get out.

The story is sad and heart wrenching, Connie is courageous and resilient. This is a wonderful memoir and I highly recommend it. Next up for me is her novel "The Problem With Murmur Lee".

A powerful read. Gives you an inside view of how an abused woman thinks and why it is so hard to break the cycle.
