Before Her Reviews

  • Darnell Reid

    I connect to the woman in the story like crazy. Somehow the writer tells of the way you feel in this world today.

  • Rena

    Beautifully written vignette about love. I would love to see it become a full memoir.

  • Sasha

    This 17-page memoir of Woodson's love life up to the current love of her life was touching and lovely. She told a story most of us are familiar with, of love found and lost, and found again. I would love for her to expand on this and turn it into something more for her readers.

  • Astrid J. Tolud

    This story reminded of so many things in my childhood that I often had to stop reading and go back, because my mind had drifted to my own memories. I love the way she writes about her experiences as if she is still there. Her mentioning of many gay male friends dying in the eighties brought back memories of the world's dealing with this new sickness by making quilts and spreading them in parks to remember all the people who had died of aids and by informational documentaries and movie

    This story reminded of so many things in my childhood that I often had to stop reading and go back, because my mind had drifted to my own memories. I love the way she writes about her experiences as if she is still there. Her mentioning of many gay male friends dying in the eighties brought back memories of the world's dealing with this new sickness by making quilts and spreading them in parks to remember all the people who had died of aids and by informational documentaries and movies, teaching us how to deal with it. There are still people dying of it, but also many living with it and it's hardly mentioned anymore. While the main character took us through the journey of who she eventually became and how she settled down - content and happy - this story also highlighted an era of a new contagion.

    i really look forward to these reads from Amazon and enjoy the listen or read option. great cover.

    is about the life-defining moments and relationships of a woman before she met her wife and became a mother. It’s a ‘thank you’ note to all the ones who came before and shaped her into the woman she is today. It’s a quick read, and a decent start to Amazon’s short story collection, ‘

    .’ That said, it’s not as strong as some of the other entries in the collection.

  • Bookphile

    Woodson writes beautifully, but I think this memoir was too short and a little too light on details for me to have found it truly compelling. Still, this definitely makes me want to read more of her writing.

  • Michele

    This is a short story from Amazon Originals.

    This is a touching memoir by a great author where she shares a few life defining moments.
