    An easy to read writing style and an interesting perspective of a young woman's upbringing. The story of a girl as she overcomes an overbearing mother and a minimally involved father. Very few books make me consider my own life and this one did. It illustrates how adults (with the best of intentions) place obstacles in front of a bright young woman to prevent her from developing full potential. Only because she is stronger than those who try to limit her is she able to break free of the future others see for her. Made me wonder if the issues described were gender related. Do young boys encounter some of the same barriers to growth? Highly recommended.

    High Heels In High Heals, author Patricia Anne Healey takes a realistic look at physical and mental abuse, and familial dysfunction. In this unexpected page-turner, we cheer on our young protagonist, Dolores Morgan, as we follow her from adolescence to young adulthood. It is a story of hope and perseverance that will appeal to both adolescent and adult readers alike. As a former middle and high school administrator, I also recommend High Heels as a must read for any guidance-sponsored reading group or school reading list for adolescents.

    Patricia Anne Healey, High Heels (2012) Lulu. ---- Patricia Healey has in simple and direct prose created an autobiographically-derived novel without the usual near-maudlin hand-wringings attendant to most screeds based on bad childhoods. Indeed, Healey has written a book which clearly, concisely and with substantial readability limns the portrait of her upbringing in the Roman Catholic tradition with a totalitarian mother, an uninterested father and a great deal of social, spiritual and occasionally physical abuse. She carefully dissects her mother's need to dominate and her role as first girl under that domination. The end is not punctual. Indeed it is the continuation of a process of maturing and discovering self which need not be read as a girl book but as a thoughtful exposition of the trials of any child coming up in such poverty. The protagonist's finding escape in literature could not be better done. I commend High Heels - as well worth the money and the learning, due to... More > Healey's mastery of the craft. This is her first novel. I hope there will be more. ------ John A. C. Cartner< Less
