A Far Cry from Home: Life in a Shelter for Homeless Women by Lisa Ferill

Spread the love

Stars: *****

Those of us who have families and homes pretend the homeless don’t exist. The author of this book used to do that too until she accepted a traineeship position from her school to help out at a women’s shelter. I am thankful for what I have, meager as it may be because it is way more than some people have. I hope and wish that someday we can get the homeless a GOOD place to live. One free of abuse, crime and mental illness and full of privacy, love, happiness, hope and health. This book has motivated me to look into the homeless of my city and see if there is someway I can help.
