"Elephant Girl" By Jane Devin: A Book About the Human Spirit, Hope & Determination

As a nonfiction writer, I can appreciate how difficult it is share ourselves with our readers. After reading Jane Devin's memoir, "Elephant Girl," I am in awe of Devin and her strength. Her story is one of pain and struggle and a horrifying childhood. It's also one of hope and determination and human spirit. It's not an easy read, but it's one you'll never forget.

Written in three distinct voices – child, teen and adult – Jane Devin takes readers on an intimate, imaginative and often harrowing life journey. Born unwanted and raised without love, the child-author invents a rich inner life to see her through years of trauma. Leaving home at 16, the teen-author struggles to find happiness and a sense of place in a world that feels confusing and unfamiliar. Then, years after stumbling into an adulthood mired in tragedy and broken dreams, the woman-author finds herself at a crossroads. The choice she ultimately makes is as stunning as it is brave. Told in unflinching and often lyrical prose, "Elephant Girlgoes beyond a singular life story to speak of powerful, universal truths and the ability of the human spirit to redeem itself. (Amazon)
