Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Painted Windows is a series of remembrances (some most certainly autobiographical in nature) from the point of view of a young girl growing up, covering all aspects of her life, from family and love, to friendship and travel and remorse. Its author, Elia Wilkinson Peattie, was born and raised in poverty in southwestern Michigan and went on to become one of the first female reporters for the Chicago Tribune. From her introduction to this work: "Will you come with me into the chamber of memory and lift your eyes to the painted windows where the figures and scenes of childhood appear? Perhaps by looking with kindly eyes at those from out my past, long wished-for visions of your own youth will appear to heal the wounds from which you suffer, and to quiet your stormy and restless heart."
