A True-Life Novel
I have finally had the time to sit down and become immersed in good books. Right now, I am reading Half Broke Horses, a book recommended to me by mom. Written by Jeannette Walls,' author of The Glass Castle, Walls takes you into the life of Lily Casey- mustang breaker, schoolteacher, ranch wife, bootlegger, poker player, etc. Throughout this novel, Walls revisits the life of frontier background in West Texas and the challenges, along with the excitement that rolls with it. It is written in short chapters that visually capture the life of Lily Casey.
A great quote from the beginning... "The hardest thing in life is learning how to fall."
