About the Book

This book tells the story of a young child who dreams of writing a book about her life experiences while living in a convent orphanage. She believes that writing about her past will help her cherish the good and bad moments she has encountered. The writer is convinced that memories can quickly fade when not written down and that writing about one's life experiences helps create a collection of memories that can be revisited anytime. In the writer's opinion, writing takes us to a new level of immersion in our own stories, allowing us to relive them during our leisure time. After her children grew up, she finally got the chance to pursue her dream of writing.
