I was emailed a link to a video clip from the Montel Williams show featuring Ms. Stringfellow and Faith. Being a dog lover, I immediately went to Amazon and ordered a copy. According to the author, there is more than one version in the marketplace, one being the unedited version which she never meant for publication. I apparently got the unedited version. I was appalled at the sentence structure (or lack thereof) and poor word usage, but tried to struggle through the story. There really is a story in there trying to get out, but I was not able to finish the book! Even in a rough draft, I think a college professor who teaches English would know the difference between "bear hand" and "bare hand", or when is the appropriate time to use "affect" rather than "effect". Most dogs, also, do not sit on their "hunches"; the ones I've known sit on their "haunches". The list goes on and on, and I am sure Ms. Stringfellow will take issue with my comments. I'm not trying to be mean. I know what it is to go through bad times in life, and I admire the faith and courage which took her through all of her crises. The kids really are adorable and I felt complete compassion for their situation. I just wish I had gotten hold of the "good" version of the book; maybe the experience would have been better.
