In 1906, I was barely over fourteen years old, and it was my wedding day. My older sister, Helen, came to my room, took me by the hand, and sat me down on the bed. She said, 'You've always been a good girl, Maude, and done what I told you. Now, you're going to be a married woman, and he will be the head of the house. When you go home tonight after your party, no matter what he wants to do to you, you have to let him do it. Do you understand?' I didn't understand, but I nodded my head anyway. It sounded strange to me, the way so many things did. I would do what she told me. I didn't have a choice, any more than I had a choice in being born.

I have listened to this book several times. I am stunned by Maude‚ÄĚs life. If I get down about my current situation I think about her.

Story was believably a true account of a woman's deeply depressing life. It was tough to listen to her true distain and contempt for 3 of her children. The narration was close to unbearable- in and out of attempted southern accents; misspoken words and completely wrong name referenced at times. Hard to follow with the narration....
