Comments:
wow, i am a relative of Viola. I didn't even realize she had written this book (i just saw her too... isn't that sad...). I am actually quite eager to read it. I imagine all the interesting things she can say about my family. Its huge, tight-knit and absolutely amazing. You really don't realize the importance of family until you witness and participate amongst such an incredible one that i have.
