All three of these tools that Jeannette uses really helps to shape her story in a way that is understandable, flowing, and simple.

In this analysis, he says that Kaye is one of America’s wisest writers. “Gibbon's wisdom is an insight into the human heart, an understanding of what is true or just or right in us” ( McMillan 2011). When Gibbons says “It took me a long time to learn that mistakes aren't good or bad, they're just mistakes, and you clean them up and go on.” (Gibbons 2011) it proves that what Eari in saying is right. McMillan also claims that “even when writing from the perspective of an emotionally wrecked, but fanciful young girl, Gibbon's is reporting the emotional wreckage and the fancy with a clear, dry eye.”

Wrestling with our Inner Angels, Module 5 Kristen Trovato I loved the way Kehoe sought to fill the existing spiritual gap in assessing and working with her mentally ill clients at Longwood. I felt her approach was holistic and person-centered in the best of ways. Kehoe’s work challenged traditional clinical boundaries by acknowledging and extending respect to the deeper spiritual realities of her clients. While this orientation of respect and dignity may seem commonplace and uncomplicated, in a world where individuals with mental illness are often treated as second class citizens and with a general air of wariness, caution and suspicion, Kehoe’s work is truly remarkable and groundbreaking.

She talks about how self pity is a natural part of the human experience of grieving, and she convinces the reader of this too. She shows the reader that this is how she copes. As a reader, or at least for me, I understand and appreciate this. This book is kind of a downer, and it can be rather technical at times, but it remains a page turner because of the great flow and smooth stories. Also, the technicality of this piece rings true to the person that you learn Didion is.
