I Love to Tell the Story by Susan Barnett Braun

I absolutely loved this! It was almost like reading my own story and brought back some great memories. Each chapter begins with the words to a song and I found myself singing as I read them. Some were old hymns I grew up with and miss today as our church does the praise song thing.
Susan tells of her experiences in her church from her earliest memories through high school graduation. I related to so much of her story except for the fact that my parents did not attend church. I hitched a ride every Sunday with my next door neighbors. Susan always had the support of her parents and younger sister. Her written words were interlaced with her memories and a strong dose of humor. Christmas plays, youth choir, flannel board stories, baptism and the stigma of being chubby, wearing glasses and longing for go-go boots were just some of the relatable reminders of my own experiences. I am ten years older than Susan but those my age through Susan’s age and beyond will enjoy reading this. As a matter of fact it would be great reading material for those much younger to see the past and appreciate where they came from. It was a quick, fun read. One that I will remember for a very long time.
I received an ebook copy of this book from Celebrate Lit through the publisher but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.
