    ePUB Mermaid Epub í ↠ formresponse.co.uk mermaid book, Mermaid PDF/EPUBTo read Eileen Cronin's devastatingly human memoir is to be plunged into a seemingly bottomless well of very deep emotions burning shock fierce longing everyday desire well founded rage and a monumental yearning to be seen as one actually is Many of the scenes here are of nightmare level intensity ranging from the perspectives of a mobility limited small child wiggling at her mentally ill mother's feet desperate for love and attention to the buddingly lovely adolescent making out in the back of a van terrified of what her disability might mean for her future sex life to the tried by fire adult constantly battling a familial judgment that any attempt to understand the source of her disability could only spring from an ill tempered desire to stir up trouble Yet there's surprisingly little about pain in this jaw dropping story of a smart tough little girl's fighting

    ePUB Mermaid Epub í ↠ formresponse.co.uk mermaid book, Mermaid PDF/EPUBThis is an amazing book on many levels Since I am not experienced in reviewing the books I read I can only say what it meant to me I chose to read it when I noticed its overall subject living with a disability A few years back and turning 65 I decided I would try to write a memoir about my partially disabling condition It was not because of a birth defect rather a sudden occurrence when I was 21 a car crash It seems like so much happened in so short a after that and I remember it so well but if I never write it down I would feel like it was just so much water under t

    ePUB Mermaid Epub í ↠ formresponse.co.uk mermaid book, Mermaid PDF/EPUBI found the writing here to be odd Sometimes there were long descriptions of events the author obviously felt were crucial to understand her life story but they were written in such a way that they were very hard to follow or hard to figure out It felt sometimes like we were being asked to read between the lines without enough information The book is really less about the author's disability than about her family a huge Catholic family with a lot of issues There is also ENDLESS talk about drinking which seems to be the family's favorite past time although it proves very destructive to them Even with all this there were bits and pieces of Eileen's life that were fascinating to read about and the role of fami

    ePUB Mermaid Epub í ↠ formresponse.co.uk mermaid book, Mermaid PDF/EPUBThis is a tortuous book to read The author is born disabled lacking her forelegs and having one hand that was webbed at birth and surgically separated when she was an infant but which she still refers to as my claw hand The most prominent aspect of the book to me was her nasty family of 12 devout conservative Roman Catholics who openly called her Looney instead of EileenShe admits to being a fiercely independent child but it still seems like her family ostracizes and marginalizes her not for her handicap b

    ePUB Mermaid Epub í ↠ formresponse.co.uk mermaid book, Mermaid PDF/EPUBBecause her mom took thalidomide during her pregnancy Eileen Cronin was born without legs She was born into a Catholic family with 10 siblings None of the other children had any disabilities Growing up Eileen was always told that it was God's will that she had this disability Growing up was difficult for Eileen She battled bullying and embarrassment As she got older she heard rumors about the drug thalidomide and that possibly her mother had taken it while pregnant with her Since her mom suffered several nervous breakdowns it was years before Cronin finally found out for certain that her mom had taken thalidomide Eileen has overcome many obstacles and has led a very rich life

    ePUB Mermaid Epub í ↠ formresponse.co.uk mermaid book, Mermaid PDF/EPUBMermaid evokes so many powerful emotions It's a truthful look at growing up in a family of eleven We watch Eileen grow up in the story and see her tenacity as a little girl born without legs to a family of competitive athletes and ballerinas She describes her own flaws as well as her family's with a layer of compassion The story begins as we watch her first suiddle and then literally and figuratively she grows into a beautiful mermaid by taking her pen to paper and ultimately finding her voice I feel blessed she chose to share her story and definitely recommend this book I cannot wait to read by this breakthrough writer
