Burned: A Memoir
Burned: A Memoir

Amber Guetebier, March 19, 2010

The poet in Louise Nayer comes across beautifully in every word of this heart wrenching and honest memoir of her life so deeply effected by her parents tragic accident and the subsequent uprooting of her family's life-as-they-knew-it.This book not only offers insight into the perception of beauty, but also offers deep lessons in survival, and in putting a family back together. Burned will serve as an inspiration to anyone who has experienced a life-changing accident in their family or close circles. It reads brilliantly, moving from a young girl's voice to that of an Louise as an adult and a mother. You are never left forgetting the tragedy but you are also kept side by side with real human triumph. An outstanding work.

Illicit affairs, historical figures, a young girl throwing away her future, and best of all, a lake monster!
