The Rent Collector w/ Book Giveaway

Book Details
Author: Camron Wright
Release Date: September 2012
Publisher: Shadow Mountain
Genre: Historical Fiction

This book is one of those amazing, 
change-your-life, kind of stories!

A woman, (Sang Ly), living in a dump, wants to learn how to read so she can better herself and her family's situation.

Who can teach her? The one who sharply demands the rent each month.

Over the course of time these two women learn a lot about each other and the world of literature.

Sang Ly discovers things she can do for herself without having to ask anyone which bus to take, or where the doctor's office is, or how to better her family life.

She also discovers a side of the "rent collector" that no one else ever knew.

As I was reading I realized how much I take reading for granted.

How blessed we are...those of us who LOVE to have the whole world at our fingertips...even if we sometimes read to escape where we are in life.

This book is based on a true story!
